night sky

Dusk

DUSK

Ribbons of pink and purple
rest on distant horizon,
crickets and bullfrogs singing
lullaby of
evening contentment.

Gone is the noise of the day.
Tomorrow, nowhere in sight.
Only now.

SPANGLED SKY
(a shadorma)

Midnight blues
brightened by red hues
when white stars
ignited
flash and dance in remembrance
of independence.

THE STARS ARE BRIGHTLY SHINING
(a shadorma)

When darkness
closes in, I look
heavenward
and I AM
reminded of those whose lives
add light to my life.
