On this, the shortest day, the sun has set,
The yellow moon its face has not shown yet.
While misty clouds hide vast and brighter skies,
Our Earth, in still and sightless darkness lies.
Unseen by us, the heavens now conceal
A message they care not yet to reveal.
Then dark clouds part, the sky is sparked with light,
Unhindered by moon’s comforting warm light.
And burdened with the truth of all they know,
The stars send message down to us below.
Words, that lie beyond Earth’s atmosphere,
Where air and life, consciousness disappear.
Be still now, listen to the heavens’ chime
That rings out, “Do not fear, there is still time.”
