Sorry, this post is so late. I really wanted to post on Thursday but I’ve been so busy…
Happy (late) World Book Day! \(^ w ^)/
I was inspired by one of this years WBD books, to write this short poem.
A Million Light Years Away
The sky is so tragically beautiful, a graveyard of stars.
A spectrum of dappled light, reflecting back at me.
A light that’s travelled millions of light years just to reach my eyes, just so I can experience its beauty.
Who knows if it’s still there, shining a million light years away; a light that I will never see, that will never reach me.
At least, while it lasts, let me take advantage of it, to guide me on my travels.
On this quiet, solitary road. A road that people are afraid to travel on.
