Starless Night

From the Ancient Gods I stole a golden and silvery bow

And aimed for the pale lunarian orb with a lithium arrow

Hoping to fetch back from the sky even just a shred, a scintilla of twilight

.

Instead what I’ve pierced was Helios’s incandescent diadem

Glowing brightly in a tangerine-pink pulse, a crystalline gem

Its resplendence burning a hole through the darkness of my starless night.
