the stars abandon 
the moon

    Hey AP, do you always act this rude or just in the presence of great poetry.

    Very nice, Kala. I'm sure AP was being sarcastic?

    The subjective connotations of the sceen makes it memorable, Kala.

    Lovely, Kala. After reading your bio, it made me think of you, the moon, and the stars your children. 'Abandoned' for a time, but always to return. This may not be at ALL what you had in mind, but thought I'd let you know where your words took me. Thanks for the journey.

    sunset
    with a wink
    stars out of hiding

    from her hiding place, laughter-
