He is gone (Week 20 Poet Rally)


Sun has vanished

moon peers over the plains

gently she whispers

“where have you gone?”

“Radiating light

to other parts of the world”

He booms

None too quietly

She smiles in her dark solitude

Knowing all is well

He is content

In his world

Even when he is gone

he inspires

She glows with pride

Thanks to Jingle for the Award. I would like to pass this award on to a friend Charles Martin.
