The Legend Of Day And Night

January 25, 2021

a myth that explains why the sky turns black at night (by AstroWriter)

Long long ago
In a land not far away
There existed no sleep or wake
No night or day

But then a fairy came along
She said her name was Night
She sprinkled fairy dust on everyone's eyes
Which made them see blue with white spots shining bright

Another fairy came along
Night's sister, Day
She brought with her a sun
That she left here to stay

Now the sun rises 
And it sets in the end
But only when it is in the sky
Can we see again

When it isn't flying high
Our vision turns blue and white
And that my love, is the legend
The legend of Day and Night
I understand this poem switched things around: now it's about how we can't see with the sun, but it was so fun to write!!!!!

    WHOA. That flipped my perspective a little
    Re: hi! You’re welcome. I definitely think your a constant and welcome presence here. I remember you welcoming me, and I know you continue to do that and help people. Plus, you’ve published a lot of pieces and have a lot of followers—not that that’s the most important thing, but it certainly shows you’ve been part of this place for a long time.
    How are you doing?
