Long ago, Moon reigned alone and empty
born of the Gods Sky and Sea.
The world was painted with a pale light,
that came from Moon's own might.
"Hello, I don't believe we have met before?"
"Call me Heat."
"I am Light."
A meeting destined in the heavens above,
inspiring Heat and Light to love.
For Moon had grown sickly all night,
as she never had time to rest from her plight.
"What shall we call it?"
"The yellow light that we lit?"
"Yes. It's like a disc. A shining disc."
Light circled Heat like a shield.
Blinding those who do not yield
with their interest or attempts to charm
Heat away from Light's arms.
"Perhaps we shall call it Light?"
"No, we shall call it Bright!"
"Please, we cannot fight."
This world moves forward even as time stands still.
Heat takes Light's hand with great thrill.
A movement not so grand,
yet it's worth more than the price of this land.
"Feel the warmth of his heat!"
"He climbs the sky with no fear of defeat!"
"Moon can finally rest her weary feet."
The pair watched with great pride
in the sky, their child no longer hides.
Look at him! He soars! He flies!
Bringing heat and light to the lands beneath the skies.
"My child, formed from Heat and Light"
"Please do not feel any fright."
"My child, vow to keep balance with the night"
"An eternal dance with Moon so bright."
"And remember above all else,"
"That when the dark arrives,"
"know that Moon will maintain hope and life."
"Maintain life and hope, my Son."
Son vs Sun
I just wanted a good story. A warm ending to those troublesome vowels.
Well, that's the end! I hope you enjoyed my forgotten vow(el)s series! I certainly enjoyed it. It has been a challenge to try and avoid certain vowels. E and O were extraordinarily difficult, but it was so rewarding in the end. I did it and I'm proud! If anyone else would like to challenge themselves, I would suggest trying to drop vowels or even consonants. Force yourself to write differently and you'll be surprised by what you can create.
Thanks for reading!
