What is it about Rabbits and moons?
George_Goat

Nightfall,
 1
 
 
a little rabbit emerged,
 2
 
 
ruby eyes glinting with a hint of the cosmos.
 3
 
 
From an egg of a moon the tiny one dropped,
 4
 
 
Almost like the hen
 5
 
 
In a bowl of chicken with stars.
 6
 
 
Out in the big, big world now
 7
 
 
Not knowing of all the pitfalls,
 8
 
 
This stewing has
 9
 
 
so many unknown ingredients.
 10
 
 
In the unreachable edges of the container,
 11
 
 
is the label even readable?  
 12
 
 
That rabbit had been to earth once,
 13
 
 
Opening its eyes with a little ball in the sky.
 14
 
 
This rabbit, freshly birthed,
 15
 
 
May know more than the rest,
 16
 
 
That opening one’s eyes in the dark
 17
 
 
Is so very similar to being awake.
