A Moonwalk in the Dark (NaPoWriMo)

A Moonwalk in the Dark
By Donna M. Monnig

Light, pale, cascading,
down the rabbit hole
to this tiny hamlet.
A planet, Earth seems
so large.
Until the dark of night
lights the world.
Trees disappear into shadow,
rolling hills fall away.
Land, devoured by darkness.
Look up instead.
The universe on display, a
billion planets reigning
down upon our heads.
Pinpricks of light, make
us small.
The beauty of nothing is
Light, so pale, cascading
down to this tiny hamlet –
light years, 8 million or 5?
Matter is relative,
horology is a manmade art.
Untouchable, this natural
wonder, moonlight, stars,
space. The universe –
my favorite place to take
a moonwalk in the dark.
