The Night Sky
The moon sits patiently in the sky.
Its silver rays cast shadows all around
As it glints against the calm waters below.
The stars sparkle like glitter on a black canvas.
A golden streak across the sky and an eager wish made.
A girl lies in the grass below, eyes twinkling like the stars above.
Her love for the shimmering sky was never-ending.
Her infatuation never faded as the years went by.
Her finger traced constellations, connecting dots with imaginary lines.
By morning, the sun will whisk away the darkness
And all the things that night brings with it.
This girl will find her way back to bed before dawn
But her imagination will run wild and free throughout the next day...
