The Sun’s Glory (Poetry)

the sun rose, filling the land with light

the animals rejoiced and danced

everything was beautiful, only if you didn’t look too close

some plants began to dry out

their pleads for shade were unheard and ignored

their lives dwindled as the sun never left

and no one mentioned the moon as she set

why would they?

they basked in the warm sunlight, ignorant to darkness falling upon the other half of the world

as the animals rejoiced, the plants dried out, and the rest of the world was shut out and forced away

the sun didn’t care enough to share his sunlight 

to the rest

so, the sun continues dressing his lands with his ray of light, taking in his glory

the moon stays solemn and quiet, knowing her pleads to the sun won’t save her land or even his own plants
