The shadows
Creep up.

My bed will keep me safe.
I hold the comforter close.

The starlight  
Chases away the shadows.

Thank the stars!

The sun
High in the sky
Like it’s standing on
A mountaintop
Balancing on the peak.

It’s lunchtime
All of our stomachs grumble.

We sit at the table.
Sandwiches!
In my collection The Day. Also, sandwiches are awesome.

I look up
At the sky.
The stars
Wink at me.

It grows darker
And more stars appear
Until
The blackness
Blanketing the Earth
Is covered in shining dots.

I wonder
How long it took
For the starlight
To get here?
In my collection The Night. I love the stars. I like to believe that the stars are little windows of light coming from our loved ones in heaven beaming down on us to tell us they’re happy.

The sun
Now completely above
the horizon.

The shadows
Feel cold
But what the sun touches
Is warm.

I go outside
And watch
The birds
Chirp to their neighbors.

My neighborhood
Wakes up.
Good morning!
In my collection The Day
Malia 4d
The stars
Start to peek out
Waking up
From their sleep
Climbing out
The horizon.

Is it
An airplane
Or a shooting star
Passing by?

I can never tell.
In my collection The Night
Malia 4d
My eyes
Flick open
I look through the window
By my bed.

The sun
So many colors
Blinding
Yet so beautiful.

The pinks
And the oranges
The yellows
And the reds.

The shades
Of those colors
Give me hope
Motivate me
To be my own beginning
Like those colors
Beginning  a day.
In my collection The Day

They say
IGNORANCE IS BLISS
And it’s true
But wouldn’t you
Want to know the world
Around you?

Perhaps
It’s because
CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT.
And bliss
Is so much better
Then being curious.

The last part
Was a lie
Because while
IGNORANCE IS BLISS
And CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT
Satisfaction of his discovery
Brought the
Inquisitive cat back.
Words in all caps is the sayings. This was inspired by the saying, “curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back.”
