A cloudless night

A cloudless night like this,

can set the spirit soaring

Because it shows me

the beauty of the stars

Because it shows me

the light, even in the dark

It urges me

to be patient.

For, under that darkness

in my mind,

are hidden gems

waiting

to be sprinkled as glitter

in tales

yet to be born

Wait, it seems to say,

for the wind of change

Wait, it seems to say,

for the words to flow

for the magic to show

**************************************

A spontaneous effort for the prompt "A cloudless night like this can set the spirit soaring' at Keith from Keith's Ramblings has come up an interesting prompt site, "Carry On Tuesday"

(This week our prompt is the opening line of A Walk After Dark by W. H. Auden

A cloudless night like this can set the spirit soaring

Use it at the start or somewhere within your verse or prose. .)
