The sun set in the far West side of the horizon
as the clouds covered it up into a pink candy.
A few minutes after its struggle to
disappear behind the clouds, peaks and
ranges of the Rwenzori,
The dusky dust started to fill the space.
But the star in the East retreated from the clouds
through the dusky aerosphere.
It appeared to be standing on it’s own accord
in the space in between the earth and the heavens.
It broadcasted a solitary lifestyle from the way it
With its concave decagons, it beamed with glory
unto the earth.
Unveiling it’s greatness unto me
Reminding me to stay calm
and that she will lead the way into the
A few minutes after,
the moon appeared from the West
side of the horizon
and subtly shifted towards the
setting glory of it’s white
My drugget, Shooby and I,
At 1:30am in the night
We decided that we would have
a moonlight picnic in the forest.
Shooby was to guard us.
Something that she has always done.
Plus she always loved to do.
We enjoyed the company of each other.
But, in the dead of the night,
The cold winds blew
shaking the trees relentlessly.
I was filled with consternation.
I opened my eyes only to
find Shooby’s not next to me.
I walked to the shore of the rivulet
Calling out Shooby in a muffled inflection
I couldn’t find her because I had lost her
I sat on the rock
and cried my eyes out.
From since then, I never
saw Shooby again.
I miss when she used to
run to me and hug me.
I miss how she used to
woof, whimper, growl, whine,
hulf, yelp and yip.
The wagging tail and beguiling
eyes when she used to see me
I miss it, all of it.
I did not know that in the dead
of that night, I would lose her and never
see her again.
I resuscitated myself wishing that it is
only a hallucination.
