Sol’s Twin

From nothingness
there was light
Blinding white &
Pulsing life
A heartbeat
image
Then two.
Twins they were
As they turned blue
They danced
They played
Spinning
around and around.
image
Till energies expended
Their blues faded and
One said
“I’m tired, Brother.
Must we carry on?” and the
Other replied
“Come, Brother.
I will shield thee.”
Then two became one
And he turned yellow.
Alone in space
He wept tears of flame
image
But noticed his tears
Brought life forth.
So a guardian he became
once again.
Giving his soul and heart
To feed these lives
He brought forth
image
He grows ever larger still
And still gives yet more.
And more and more
Till yellow fades
image
Into red
The final scream
When the reaper comes
To suck the life
of the old giant
image
nothingness returns
Space reclaims the brothers’
Playground and the life
He nurtured.
