The moon, she is a mystery of light against the darkness.
She stands alone in the sky and illuminates the Earth. No batteries required. Just a dark curtain of night behind her is all she needs.
She is the sister to the Earth and knows all her secrets. She has traveled along side Earth for thousands of centuries. She has trapped the Earth's history in the bosom of her aura. The cries, the screams, the laughter, the hate, the love of all the creatures on Earth are imbedded in her memory.
She is sworn to secrecy by a special code she shares with her sister, Earth. Keeping the secrets safe until the end of time. Look into her crevices and see years of wear. She is warmth and wisdom.
She glows brighter. Her sliver of light is as comforting as her full radiant glow. She is majestic in her own right, but enjoys her dependency on Earth. A natural reception between the two keeps peace. They share the same sky. There is enough room for both of them.
The moon she is a mystery of light against the darkness.
