New Light

by JD DeHart


Welcome to the new
moon, standing gleaming
silver over an ancient planet,
guard's eye in the sky

Welcome to the new
hope to replace the old
one, a new species that
clings to shadow corners

And welcome to the new
world, a lot like the old one,
sure, I can see that too,
but it's a new story, retold.
