The Sun and the Moon

A fable

By Elsa Michaela | @surfthoughtPublished about a year ago 1 min read

The Moon watched the Sun as he entertained the mountains

Saw how the Sky blushed as he lay himself down

Watched how the Sea she dressed all in scarlet

Sighed at his feet when he arose

The Moon she was hopeless

She ran from the daylight

Ran to the blackness

Hid herself high in the night

Holding tightly a tether,

Keeps her from floating out into nowhere

Survives in the still, dreaming of wholeness

Her glow a reflection of that which she lost

What will it take to lighten her heart?

She cries herself the company of a billion stars

About the Creator

Elsa Michaela | @surfthought

When you hear a song

One that stops you in your tracks

That seems spoken from your own mind

Do you listen and listen again?

Follow its streams until a tide,

Inside you

Rushes to fill in the small hollow parts

…Yeah, me too
