Idol Survivor: "Where Once The Sky"

Where Once The Sky
idol survivor | daily-fic challenge, day 7

~ * ~ * ~ * ~

An empty blackness
stills the earth
where once the sky
held stars,
and brought the moon
to stir our dreams.

The darkness
is a plague
of dread, of doubt,
the truth behind it
all obscured.

What is now lost,
and what forgotten?

We gaze and search,
and we wish
for simpler times,
for astral patterns
spilling forth

How might the seeker
become the seer?

We would welcome
answers, omens,
if only we could,
if only the questions
had not finally
grown too vast.
