A wish saved for someone else

4 Comments

Stars dapple the blackened sky of night.

I sit, chilled, pondering, not the expanse of the universe

but, the magical quality of those stars.

The silence of the night deafens me,

but the light from those stars has a musical quality,

tickling my senses as they twinkle.

Their ethereal incandescence is a gift.

The night is alive.

Constellations form as the night hurries to meet the morning.

Patterns shift as the world rotates on its axis.

I take in the wonder that is above me,

but I look away before it’s too late.

I want to share my sky,

hoping that a shooting star is seen

by someone who needs the wish more than I.

  1. I share your love of the stars in the sky with their magical qualities – I miss my Texas skies. Living in the city with so many man-made lights hides the constellations my uncle taught me to love decades ago. Time passes, but the stars in the skies continue to guide us.
