Star-Trail Night

A Poem By Raine // 6/10/2012

I gazed towards the gentle glow
that was slowly disappearing
stars appeared apprehensively
from their twilit hiding spots.

The ghostly fog in front of me
was my warm breath sliding
into the darkness as I
shifted from foot to foot.

This was a star-trail night.
The moon no longer visible,
the clouds long since gone,
a stunning visage left behind.

Light against dark. Dark
against the light.
Something stirred inside me
my arms outstretched
to embrace the sky.



This is beautiful. I especially love the third verse.

I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right. --The Book Thief

Perfect Description!

I am a star-gazer and this describe the irreplaceable feeling I get when I walk up my back door and the stars are brightly shining. I feel like I could dance forever when I'm out there. Keep writing!
