The lamp
in my room.
is painted to resemble the sun,
a pitiful recreation of the natural wonder.
Plastic glow-n-the dark stars
scattering the pale blue ceiling.
Try as you might
to recreate the sight
no matter what you do
it is to no avail
you cannot recreate the feeling.

Thank you so so much!!! I love it when (on rare occasion) people comment on them, and I'm so glad you like it! I get to have a little confidence booster :)

I'll have to look at some of yours!
