a blackboard
painted with stars and Moon

a stick of chalk
bringing words to Life

snowdrop hunting
as Hope exercise

and a garden in June
beginner’s guide to Eternity

the World is a Copybook
Love is the Lesson

and we are both
Students and Teachers

The world is my school
I said like a fool
and I questioned Mrs. Moon.

Do we have to reflect sunlight too?
“not necessarily”
She replied.

Then I asked Professor Sky.
Is there a way to fly?
“There is…” He said,

“…but not the one you think!”
So what is the main Lesson?
I whispered to the Morning Star.

“There are only three things
you need to know
before entering my Realm.

How to live. How to give
and above all,
how to forgive.”

Those were the words I heard
at the break of Dawn,
a Lesson from the Morning Star.
