The Wishes of Sun Day

if i turned over all the pebbleS

one by onE

i thought i might see the suN,

 

but i must’ve been quite mistakeN

because i recently hearD

that petals, not pebbles, are the pretty oneS,

 

and sunS

apparently are too good for there titlE

and so we had to renamed them starS...

 

now we can look through to theM

past the veins of petal pebbleS

and scar our iriseS
