Koonyum Sun and Nunli Moon

Koonyum Sun sat on the sun
Beaming, blowing heatbeams all day.

Nunli Moon sang a harmony,
A tune against the mourning moon.

Koonyum Sun knew warmth
And shade.
Knew shade as dark and
Shade as death.
Knew moon as fat
As death and dying breath.

Nunli Moon knew warmth
And shade.
Knew wamth as burn and
Warmth as pain.
Knew sun as fat
As pain and Nunli's bane.

If Koonyum Sun and Nunli Moon
Had shared the empty space between...
Perhaps hot comets in peace of dark -
As bright eyes had never seen?

Like most, I am learning and trying to home the craft everyday, whilst not forgetting to express myself in a unique and original way.Thank you! more…
