A Sapphire World

by Haley Moody

 

What’s with that look?

Are you down with the blue devils?

Yes, the sea’s “glitter” has faded;

Washed away by the moon

As it ascended above the clouds.

But something more spectacular ensues.

Look closely, my dear,

In the sea of wonder.

Do you see it?

Do you see the sky’s fairy lights

Reflected in the water?

Yes, right there.

Next to the large, round planet.

“The moon” you say?

No, dear.

It’s another world:

A sapphire world!
