The Sun and the Moon
I heard a story once about how the sun loved the moon so much that he disappeared at night to let her shine. But it left me wondering, and I couldn’t understand.
I wondered about when the moon travels across the sky in the daylight, a sliver of pale in the blue. I wondered about the times when the moon and sun align, and cause strange shadows.
Does the moon inch across the daytime sky because she misses the sun? Do they align every once in a while because being apart has become too painful?
I believe that the moon loved the sun. And the sun loved the moon. And together they created rays of light and ocean waves.
Was it the world between them? Keeping them apart? Or was the world something they worked on together? Are they really kept apart at all?
I heard a story once about how the moon reflects the sun’s light. Have you seen what a woman in love looks like? All aglow with the knowledge that through night or day a man holds her heart and all the music of her soul.
I heard a story once about how the sun loved the moon so much that he disappeared at night to let her shine.
But perhaps it was so much more than that. And even when she couldn’t see the sun she reflected his light because she knew he loved her. And in the day she snuck across the sky to be with him.
I imagine that the rainy days are the moments when they run across space towards each other. And maybe the clouds gather to give them the moment of peace and belonging.
The sun and the moon.
