The Moon and the Child

A bowl of liquid silver against a background of pitch black

Emitting a soft, pale glow onto the world encased in night below

“I want to be like the moon,” a small child says as he looks outside

“I want to illuminate the lives of those who see darkness.”

So he makes a wish upon the glowing sphere of hope in the sky

And falls asleep into his wonderland of bright dreams.
