Does the sun stop shining
because a flower loses its petals?
I’ve asked myself this
question in silence.
You know it’s bad when the mornings start
to feel longer than the long nights.
I’ve answered this
question in whispers.
I gave the heavens a secret
and they promised to never tell.
Sometimes, the best way to answer
a question is to ask another.
How long will the moon stay full
if the wolves are empty?
