Solar Dilemma

solar dilemma

I’m tempted to sneak a peek
just because they said – don’t
a chance glance surely won’t
strike me down, leave me weak

I’m tempted to stop and stare
as if I don’t care about the hype
of a solar type
just a quick look up, on a dare

moon and sun deserve some time
to wave a greeting as they pass by
without us gawking or being spies
on this private meeting in Northern clime

I’ll stay in the dark with my little box
watch as the shadow crosses by
resist the desire to look up to the sky
till the moon floats away – sunlight unblocks
