Poetry Month 2023 Post #16: “Night Sky”

April is #NationalPoetryMonth and I am posting a Poem-A-Day.  Look up at night whenever you can, and let the stars speak to you.

Night Sky

Infinite expanse calling me
to look up, peer out into everlastingness.
Optical illusions, ancient mysteries
stretching beyond how I am made.

Glistening perspiration of moonlight
dancing on celestial bodies
blinking, dazzling, quiet miracles,
universes drifting, merging,
collapsing into more

Light and dark, shadow and refraction
simultaneous, luminous
world within worlds.
And I stand feet on small pebbles
that map the path to
my abiding,
anonymous, fused
nowhere and here.
