My Starry Night

Posted: April 7, 2014 in poetry


watch and wonder about the light
sweet sweet evening leading to night
calming winds are our day’s delight
cooling fresh air for all that’s right
clearing skies as the stars ignite

walking into the dimming light
velvet drapes upon starry night
no more warmth of our days delight
cold chilling air for all that’s right
sheltered moon as the stars ignite

leave me now with this faded light
shield your eyes from seeing the night
long dark shapes are now night’s delight
cold stale air soaking all that’s right
calm your heart as the stars ignite

lay me at rest in this pale light
no vigils asked this starry night
or dark shadows of deaths delight
silently watch what seems not right
ash to ash as my stars ignite



  1. van Gogh’s Starry Night (a poster) hangs in front of my work desk. So I can see it every day.
    Your words, your poem, are a great accompaniment to his art.
    Beautiful poem!
    A joy to read…as it’s rhyming is wonderful.
    The thoughts and emotions of it brought tears to my eyes.
    HUGS!!! 🙂
