seeking stars

like so many other dreamers
i am more comfortable
in moonlight
than in the piercing sunrays
of the daylight hours
no matter what the season
i seek velvet nighttime skies
in which to free my spirit
i walk alone
and gaze at those far lights
ashine above me
imagining them other worlds
of bright yet unseen promise
although science
with its proofs calls me a liar
i do not care
for me they glow
with the possibility of rapture
i seek the stars
a saint unhaloed
on a solitary pilgrimage

    I can relate to these feelings—halos around all stars…and you are one here on RB for sure!

    Don’t shake the children…
    awaken them slowly
    carefully
    or they may be startled
    feeling little more than shadows
    frantic with light…

  • I awake that way every day….thank you for the kind words but I am no star…just another dauber and scribbler
