Capturing Campus: October


the moon watches over me
as it retires behind the bold sun

it prays for peace
in a day to be lived
well and with vitality
it stands in solidarity
an enduring reminder
of birthdays long gone

and when black ink takes hold
amidst the chill and constellations
it appears
bright as day
to say goodnight
and welcome home
