Night's Fall to Day

Post by Sebastian Autumn » Fri Jun 26, 2009 2:40 am

The moon,
Fattened on milk
Yawns sleepily

His insane mouth
Gaping,
An O obmutescent,
An idiot grin

Dolorously forlorn,
The stars gaze expectantly
As to some great
Overwhelming question,
A ghostly If...,
On an awakening
Horizon

Dawn breaks,
Catching dew-drops
Like tears –
The last of a tragedy,

Pauses slightly
On hillsides

Then rainbows spill,
A million morning smiles.


Meh, I'd have preferred to have kept the original formatting. Oh well :)
