I was taking a morning walk one day just as the sun was coming up and the moon was going down. I got to thinking about the way the two firmaments operated and really how they did their jobs.Those work habits are often different.

The sun has a schedule,

The moon works in shifts.

The sun comes up early in the morning,

The moon clocks in whenever it has to,

sometimes in the morning,

sometimes in the evening.

When it's hot,

the sun goes high in the air

and works a long, hard day.

In the winter, it goes to work

for half a day,

then gets busier bit by bit.

A bit of the moon sticks its

face out, a little at a time

and when it's full, it lights up

everything like a giant street light.

Then it goes down in a huge orange ball

while the sun comes up.
