The day the earth stood still


The winds blew,
The seasons changed,
Until the stars reclaimed one of their own,
 Then the earth stood still.

An endless winter,

No hope for spring,
Undying pain,

A stubborn withholding of the rain.

Time heals all wounds,

but the earth refused to move.
Waiting patiently for a sip of fresh space,

She allowed pain to fester.

A shooting star landed close by,
Carrying with it space and time,
Reminding me of forgotten pleasures.
The wind beat up against my face,

I felt a drop on my head,

My heart leaped as I grabbed my umbrella.
