Your world.
The light passes through it,
illuminating speckles,
dark stars in your days.
Night comes. The darkness
extinguishes stars.

You learn change from
the light but remain
unprepared. Now you must
open one eye and emerge
from the universe into
a light unknown, still
longing for the stars.

This poem was written on day two of Miz Quickly’s November challenge. Go look at her inspiring image prompt.
