Celestial Magic


Across the water, blue
Splashes of amber
Melt to a different hue

As the sun settles there
He remembers its shine
On her face, her hair

Across the water, blue
The nightlight rises
On time, on cue

In moonbeams bright
She remembers the sparkle
Of his eyes in the light

Defying the odds of the celestial
Their orbits once paired
As something quite magical

Yet like the sun follows the moon
Their paths cannot cross
Neither at midnight, nor noon

P. Wanken

Written for Poetic Bloomings prompt to write a “night” poem.
