Vast is the Night Sky

All Poems


Vast is the night sky

Cerulean imbricates the teal stained sky,

Loitering it with veins of turquoise.

Waltzing across the stage, the moon dances with the stars. 

Reaching his pinnacle, the man in the moon smiles

As he lays his precious child earth to rest.

An angel’s breath puts out the candle of light

And chills the heat ravaged clay.

Glittering gems race across the sky

Provoking mortal wishes while

Ursa Major nestles with her cub for the night.

Orion’s path to Draco illuminated by the phoenix

That roosts amongst the legends of constellations

A gentle breeze brushes against the tips

Of pine trees who dream of being decorated

By the waterfall of cascading stars.

Cricket chirps echo throughout the immense palette of blue.

Bullfrog songs soon join in the mixture of this soothing symphony.

It is this beautiful moment that, in awe, my breath is taken from me

And staring up into the blue that spans horizon to horizon

I close my eyes and whisper: “Vast is the night sky.”
