The Midnight Sun
'The reassuring face of hope, love and loss looking back at me. '
Jamie Brener | 4 December 2018

This Blackness of night. 

Blinking lights above, 

The moon. 

The moon beaming through dark island clouds. 


Swathes of cloud above in the sea of sky. 

Defined, painted with a glower of the blue moon, 

Not a full moon but a bright moon, 

The Midnight Sun. 


The midnight Sun shining ever and ever, 

Showing its pale face. 

The reassuring face of hope, love and loss 

Looking back at me. 


The moon so bright, blurred, the Midnight Sun.
