"when we lived on the moon" by Sally Armstrong



when we lived on the moon


we danced to techno wearing spacesuits

caught space rocks in tiny glass jars

we laughed loudly in a dark sky


there were no stars


we learned to moon walk on the surface

scattered small seeds in the moon dust

we prayed for moon life in the moonshine


the small seeds saved us




A word from the author: I am based in Brighton, UK, and am studying part-time on a creative writing course. I have a passion for reading and enjoy writing short fiction and poetry. My absolute favourite novel is the mind-blowing Bunny by Mona Awad.
