Dark Dark Sky

Jet-black ink in a raven sky,

Complete darkness as, I look up high.

Nothing to see, a total black void,

Until the darkness reveals the joy,

Of a million stars, shining on high,

Minute sparkles adorning the sky.

No orange glow from urban sprawl,

A vast black canopy; amazing to all.

Moonlit Night

Moonlit Night

The moon is low in the ebony air,

A glowing ball, with silver flare,

I see you rise above the pines;

A guiding lamp which beauty defines.

Moving across the sky with ease,

Clouds pass your orb upon the breeze.

I think of a time when the world was new,

Lighting the sky with your silver hue.
