Setting fire to the moon

Setting fire to the moon

Setting the moon on fire 3

While rose petals bloomed

Inky red trail of lovers

The sun set its course

How replenished will it glow?

Asked a bee of setting sun

The dusky shadows

Peeled off the edges of day

That haunted yet skies

Withered and wizened old man

Son of none, will you now die?

Moon carried the sun

Into a frozen night sky

As it died again

Did heavenly compromise

Seal fate of the fire ball?

Sun awakes from chill

Setting fire to the moon

Shakes off its dead skin

As day pierces into night

Will none renew without fight?
