Under the Stars
The cobalt sky has many eyes;
they're brightest just before sunrise
Sprinkled amidst the indigo
we stop to let the sandman sow
Glittering `cross the peaceful night
we view a shooting star take flight;
The sky becomes a starlit show
as sea reflects its silver glow,
In awe we kiss and say goodnight.
I watch as you walk from my sight,
soft . . . starlit.
