The sky sighed,
breathed above
a land adored,
and when night
set in, punctured
holes within its heart
and called them stars
instead of scars
to still give light

The earth cried
covered in a
veil of clouds,
hid from love
it could not reach

The rain fell,
the sun rose,
the tree knew
into water
it joined the
earth and sky

twin souls
