The howling wind washed over the moon.

Whispering softly – “You’ll be done soon.”

 

Stormy clouds invaded the sky –

Leaving the sun, alone, to die.

 

Stars faded from vision of sight,

Abandoning the world to the dead of night.

 

A single soul (conspicuous to none),

Escaped from shadows at the funeral of sun.

 

Fog rolling at the base of his feet –

He patiently awaited the stars retreat.

 

Finally emerging to a spotlight of one:

Alone in the world, all the living…? Gone.

 

Carefully kneeling beside a carved rock,

He traced the indents till the end of his clock.

 

He collapsed to the ground – a pile of defeat…

The earths last treasure, forever, asleep.
