Read an Excerpt

Sun has fallen
Pale indigo in the west.
Moonlight teases the eastern sky,
Before she rises above the trees.
So much gives us hope
Within hints of light,
Before rising
Above the trees.
Remember to
Remember,
As the world shifts,
And only hints of light appear
To guide us
Forward.
Remember.
