Smiling Moon

In response to Cubby’s Prompt: Laughter

You laughed the stars
Into the sky
And the moon smiled down

Did you see it’s dimples
Hollowed out from miniature craters
On the crescent moon?

The sun will shine again
On the different moons
Enlarging the dimples

But not the smile
And the stars will align
Along the night sky

Awaiting the laughter
That drove them into the sky
And made the moon smile down
