said the sun to the moon

darling, don’t you worry
people from every time and place
every generation, every culture
have believed that their world
was about to end
have believed that the world
was about to end

but personally or apocalyptically
every one of them was wrong
the world keeps on turning
and we’re still here
said the sun to the moon
said the tree to its seeds
said the sea to its waves

About the Author: I have a B.A. in Honours Religious Studies from the University of Waterloo and I love all major world religions – Eastern, Western, or in between. I’m genderqueer, and I’m comfortable with male, neutral, and female pronouns. I’m married to my dear wife Lynn, who is the love of my life, my best friend, and my muse. I think far too much, and often have too many ideas to know what to do with. And I am a doing being, just like you!
