#100Poems: Number Three

Twilight spreads its cover —
a blanket of stars
twinkling in the azure
expanse of evening.

Too dark for day.
Too light for night.
They compete for attention
as they slowly ignite the sky.

ad astra

December night that beckons me


and compels me to look

past the tree tops

past the clouds

to the hopeful moon

and beyond?
