In The Night Sky
Author: Dragonsinger

vinebar

People call them stars
like they know what they're talking about but
People
are usually wrong, 'cause
really
they're just bits of shattered light,
bits
of what used to be whole
shattered light in the darkness
kinda the way it is
the Moon is the Guide
but sometimes the Moon hides
and all those shattered lights
-broken-
get lost, and dim
until they die

alone

in the night sky

Absolutely Beautiful!

I truly loved this particular poem, Dragonsinger! I loved it because of the fact that NIGHT in its own fashion, along with the moon and stars, are my favorite pieces to read and write poetry myself about. But most of all the Moon is what gives me the most beautiful inspiration! I loved this poem from the first line to the very last. Not many people write about nature these days, but I really love the poems that are written about night, nature, and love themselves. Awesome job Dragonsinger, I loved it so much! You've got a great gift of poetry. Keep writing, and I'll keep reading!

thanks!

Wow, Silkened, thank you! Many nights I have stood outside and looked up into the sky with awe and wonderment at the beauty and majesty of it all. This poem is my way of comparing it all - there are a lot of the hard facts of life written up there, but a lot of the beauty too.
