Waiting for the Stars

018

The late afternoon sky resembled a

Tranquil and deep blue sea.

A hint of powder white clouds

Are floating by so effortlessly.

A crescent moon has settled on high

Like a heavenly nightlight in the sky.

The streaming sunlight continues to diminish

Being chased away by the encroaching darkness.

The air is cool as evening approaches

Reminding me to don on warmer clothes.

A quietness reigns in the brisk mountain air

With the soft chirping of a cricket choir.

I sat on the porch waiting in anticipation

To see all the stars that nighttime may bring.

Such a long time since I have seen

The stars at night so brightly shining;

Glowing and glittering in awesome wonder

While stretching above across the universe.

I shall sit and wait here in this still quietness

To see those twinkling gems before I rest.
