Moon and Back

Talon thought about the Moon.

He wondered why it changed a bit each day over each month.

The changing of the day to night

Day and night were what he knew. But it was the Moon that made this possible.

So when he looked at the stars that night.

He wondered once again what the Moon meant to him and everyone else on Earth.

He wondered why people said, “I’d love you to the Moon and back.”

What did love have to do with the Moon?

Did the Moon make people experience love?

Or was the emotion related to the Moon’s existence?

He yawned when his Mum told him to go to sleep.

He could stare at the stars for hours. But he still needed to sleep.

Tomorrow was a new day.

He had many questions to find the answers to. But they would not be answered tonight.

So off he went, to brush his teeth, switch off the light and go to bed.

He dreamed of the stars, so far away.

But the Moon somewhat closer, was what he dreamed about most!
