If stars could weep,
they would shower tears
of sparkling fire
to rain upon the earth
and steal the night.

No more does eve
contain
the satin solitude of peace,
just empty moments
filled with darkness,
crippled thoughts,
a purgatory
until the day is born.

Wrapped in ghostly cloak
of singing crickets
and Mockingbird songs,
I stroll
within the damp stillness
in search of solace.

Heavy is the scent
of wetted earth
and flowered branch.

Spring has torn the world
from winter's icy crypt.

On the horizon
are scarlet fingertips,
timidly touching,
like a virgin
but with more experience
and courage,
pushing back the night.

I throw off the cloak
and breathe in
the coming dawn.

(smiles) Oh Michael, this is sooooooo very heartfelt, sweet friend, yes, embrace that dawn, for hearts can break, some stars can explode when they become supernovas, and shades of gray can tinge a world, but know that the light never sleeps and shall restore amends! (big hugggsssssss) My vote is back up there for you, God Bless You, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Michael, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Michael,

This is a very beautiful piece. If only stars could take on human expressions once in a while, what all we could gleam from them.
