GloPoWriMo – Day 8

Moon Blood

This is the Moon
silver light of my blood
and the white sap of milkweed or
dandelion galaxies

This is the Sun
and what else matters?
the warmth on my shoulders
wind on my back

Will we name the stars
or stand bare beneath them
as all drops away
except me

except you

Daily Prompt: “peruse the work of one or more of these twitter bots, and use a line or two, or a phrase or even a word that stands out to you, as the seed for your own poem,” from Na/GloPoWriMo.

The bot I used: @sikenpoems 

The poem that was the seed:
This is the Moon. This is
the Sun. Let me name the stars for you.

Author’s note: I think life is beautiful, even during crisis.
