"Mommy?"
"Yes, Anna?"
"What makes the sun shine?"
"It's a big ball of fire."
"Who lit the fire mommy?"
"No one lit it Anna, it just burns."
"But isn't it cold up in the sky mommy?"
"Yes Anna it is."
"Then why doesn't the fire go out?"
"I don't know Anna."
Anna seemed satisfied with this answer.

"Mommy, what makes the moon shine?"

I wrote this for a laugh. My little sister inspired the 'mommy mommy mommy' part! Sorry this isn't long, but it didn't feel right putting it in the poetry section. Feel free to give your honest opinion in the comments.

Thanks Liv! :) I'm glad you liked it. And I think you're the first to stalk my profile. :P I appreciate that you would've given it an editors choice though! Thank you for reading it.

It's more of a short story. I think you should add some crazy descriptive imagery to make it better and a little longer. What does the little girl look like? How does the mother react to her questions? Does she sigh a lot? Is she busy trying to pay bills? What are they doing? Set the scence. You could totally turn this into something great instead of being just good! :)

Haha, thanks Nelehjr. :) I'm still not sure it should've gone in the short-story section though. I've seen poetry longer than this! Thanks for reading it. ^_^
