Sun and Moon sat beneath the willow tree, a picnic for two: a beautiful picture of one. Moon shining white on the river. Sun splaying gold on the rippling blue.
‘I miss you, Moon,’ said Sun, as he sipped tea and watched a fish flip into the glistening air above the river.
‘But I’m right here, Sun,’ smiled Moon, ‘And I’m always always in your heart.’
‘Well, why do I miss you, then? When you’re gone, why do I miss you so damn much?’
‘You don’t miss me, Sun. You miss you.’
‘Now you’re just being silly,’ said Sun as he tossed a rock into the river with a plump old splash.
‘It’s true,’ Moon smiled the glorious smile of all the world. ‘Have you not noticed, Sun, that when we laugh together you laugh just as much at yourself as you do me?’
‘Umm, I’ve not quite thought of it that way.’
‘And have you thought that maybe your love for me, is actually here to show you what your love for you looks like?
‘I love me an awful lot, don’t I?’
‘Yes Sun, you do,’ Sun and his sweet silence fell around her like the warmest hug.
Best friends, perfect mirrors.
There to help each other light the world.
