The Stars, and the Moon.

 26th of February, 2008,                                             Free Verse, G   



When it's dark, you smile down on us

With lunar warmth;

Your round face with dark blushes

When you exhibit it in its full glory.

You reflect the light of the sun,

Shining it down on the earth;

Providing the poor traveller guidance,

And serving as a mark of seasons and years,

Guiding the flow of the tide.


When we were younger,

We saw everything in you;

Some of us saw the face of a King

And his crown.

Others saw a King in full glory

Seated on his throne;

Yet some others saw a Mother

With a Child in her arms,

Like the Madonna and Child

Found in big cathedrals.

You provide the setting for story telling in times past


You; You decorate the sky, glittering like Gemstones in a Cloak;

Uncountable; You gave divine guidance to the Magi;

Announcing the Messiah's coming.


Together, both of you provide a sign for Moslems

When you are strategically placed.

When you refuse to live home,

Without your lunar and stellar brightness,

The night is dark.
