Solar Bliss

Solar Bliss


                        Long ago the moon was unreachable

                        and made of green cheese, and the Milky Way

                        that band of countless stars — unbreachable —

                        stretched across the sky from midnight ’til day.

                        An old hymn also said time’s an ever-

                        rolling stream that took all our dreams away.

                        Or was time a looping track that never

                        ended, so you pressed forward and replay?

                        Before they dethroned Earth from the centre,

                        made the Big Bang theory the mystery,

                        I held love in esteem, on an altar,

                        my sought after, compelling, real story.

                                    Like the sun you came to brighten my life

                                    with lovelight, sweet’ning bitterness and strife.
