Reach For The Stars

Word count: 74

Warning: No warning!

Hollow and fragile are these boughs

Holding every burden, every fear – so

Of a summery moonlight, shining like a fire

Without burning heat, no longer did I feel a dire

Need to do anything, I was flying amongst the stars,

Never did I think I’d get this far
