She Fell in Love with the Moon

Solany Lara
She Fell in Love with the Moon

Her love for him is not just when he is full:

             shining brightly with confidence.

Her love for him goes beyond that.

             She loves him in his many phases.

He could be new (refreshed and ready to share his light);

             half (enough light to get by) or barely showing up.

But, she does not waver at all.

             Her light shines upon him when he can’t,

so he won’t have to do it alone. He is lifted

             with each ray that shines out of her bright smile

as she illuminates the dark within him. Without her,

             he would not know how to continue to shine in the night.

-            She is the Sun

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Solany Lara is a Chicana who is the product of her immigrant parents' hard work and tenacity.

She loves sharing her love of reading with everyone she encounters, as she believes that reading can have a profound effect on people’s lives. This has led her to pursue a Master's degree in Library Science at San Jose State University. She is currently working on her first book, Hija de mi padre, which is a tribute to her late father and is scheduled for publication by Alegria Publishing in 2023.
