lune’s lights

Luna Yin

lucky stars are just as fickle as fireflies

upon closer inspection.

no wish or dream of yours could

even drift far enough into the heights of the

shadowy night to reach the cosmos watching from beyond.

like the universe would even listen when

it is eternal and you are an afterthought, a little

girl trying to cup

hope in her

tiny hands like

spilled moonlight

Luna Yin is a 14-year-old poet who was born in China, and currently lives in Canada. She credits her wild imagination and love of writing to a life spent moving between countries and reading fantasy novels. When Luna isn’t spending rainy days lounging on the sofa with a good thriller book, she’s often sitting by her piano and trying to turn her thoughts into sheet music. You can find her on Instagram at @luna.y.writes.
