Heaven’s Lamps


orange moon against a black sky

The first thing I saw this morning
The last thing I saw this night
The first had no light yet shined
The second had no shadow yet casts shadows

A moment’s pause is all I have
To look upon those forms
With a child’s wonder
Long forgotten

Beneath their light
I thought and wondered
Beneath their path
I recalled and remembered

The first held mystery
The latter commanded fealty
One was the hope in the night
The other was relief in the morn

Throughout the ages
They dance through the sky
Often alone
But sometimes together

Throughout the ages
Old and young looked above
Some with awe
Others bowed in worship

Those two bodies
Have traveled through time
Those two bodies
Have counted the ages of man

Orange sunset with green field
