The Buoyancy Of Light

The Buoyancy of Light

written by: Hemmingplay



A blistered moon falls above a blasted land

Where thin winds flip grains of sand;

Where once a shallow sea sang sweetly to the moon,

And sheltered bizarre creatures in the shallows and deeps.


But for 100 million years past the rocks had forgotten

What humidity felt like, and knew only dust

And thin breezes,

And the silence of forever.


But still the moon rolled past, night after night,

Playing its pale beams over the sands, looking, looking,

Sending seductive waves of gravity,

Searching abandoned places,

Reaching out to nothingness,

Not knowing futility, only

The buoyancy of light.
