The earth shakes
The moon walks
And the stars
Oh the stars shine

The clouds in
Colors so plain
Turn the darkest sky
To a lighter heaven above

They fly when the moon
Only walks
They draw near
As the stars twinkle
For the destined meeting

And the earth rumbles
When they amass
It seems they
The color within dull darkness
Burst and fight

Smaller things see
When they stare to
Witness the walking moon
And shining stars

As each come
A devil and dragon
Bewitching an angel with
Black wings

A bearded god carrying a wand
Long and thin
Drowns monsters
So ugly none could
Think gods created
Such things

In the starry sky
As the moon walks
Across dark, dull sky
Clouds rein above

Showing stories
Of battles
And struggles
Older than death

Alexis Gostelow
