August Night

Lying on my back gazing up at the night sky. Tracing the stars with one finger. Playing connect the dots, forming constellations. A flaming streak shoots across the sky. A meter shower in mid August. The moon is new. The night is black. Sequin silver pin holes, flicker, flashing, twinkle, dazzle. Bright beacons reaching out to all who gaze up at the night sky, such as I .Β  With each streaking star, and each shimmer. A dream is sparked igniting hope filled hearts.

      1. I’ve got to tell you…that my most favored Friday night in the fall, and winter, is just to start my fire pit…pour a bourbon, write some poetry, and watch the majesty of the heavens expose themselves in front of the fire.. it’s just right.

        Nothing more beautiful.

        Nothing more perfect.


        I’m just sayin’.
