Explosions In The Sky

The tree, melancholy, watches as the
sun slips below the horizon
and rises again in the east.

With each passing day, the tree waits,
and slowly falls in love with the
sun’s beauty and shine.
Together, they make sweet melodies.

The moon stumbles across the tree,
silently marveling over the prized gem.
But, the tree is blinded by the sun,
too clueless to take notice.

In the middle of the night,
the moon and tree collide.
The moon radiates passion and wonder.

The moon and tree crash into love,
and together, they make
explosions in the sky.
