Another Day


The earth quaked, the black sky fell into the oceans

and they rose to gobble everything.

Leaving devastation and ruin in its wake.

Shamelessly, the next day dawned

Bright and fresh.

As if yesterday had never been.

So cheerful that it hurts.

The hungry empty spaces in the skies eat up the memories

Leaving it once more untainted.

I too, look up and take hope for there will surely be another day, another life.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
