Night Sky Beckoning

Night Sky Beckoning

Night sky beckoning

That playful little star

Shimmering magic all around

Wonders near and far

Take me far away to play

Mysterious clouds of night

I hear your silent calling

"Get up and take up flight"

Soar up to the galaxies

Slide down the Milky Way

Play hide and seek with Mr. Moon

He's made of cheese they say

Play ball with all the planets

Pluto's on my team

Saturn kicks a field goal

As it glides through Neptune's seam

Twinkling with delight

Stars cheer on the game

I wave good bye and fly along

Leaving Saturn to her fame

I fly into infinity

for this is where I find

Nebula unfolding

Shapes and colors of every kind

Some stars are birthing new

while others burn out so old

Each a part of life itself

or at least that's what I'm told

I sail up to the black hole

Where fears and darkness lie

I choose to go around instead

As I've been through that dark sky

I turn my back and say so long

I'll play that part no more

Tonight I fly with Angels

I take their hands and soar

The vastness of their beauty

Surrounds me on this night

I'm filled with Spirits wonder

A place that's filled with might

For even in your bleakest hours

Just look around and see

Beyond shadows of darkness

A Glorious Light will be

There's knowledge deep within

that's spoken from Above

In my soaring heart I know

Life's filled with such great Love

The stars they flicker just a bit

Reminding me it's time

to come back from my journey

now earth seems so sublime

So long my nighttime wonderland

I'll visit you again

We'll explore some more tonight

A new game we will begin

I wave good bye and look around

A new dawn is almost here

I'll see you in my day dreams

Until the night draws near

Awake I must to start the day

Adventures never gone

In my heart they're always there

Till tonight, it won't be long

Written on a starry night

Oh Nina, You truly have a GIFT. You need to publish some of your poems. You have a fantastic way with words.

Thank you all. I'm glad you enjoyed this one as I had so much fun writing it.... it just came floating.. or should I say, soaring in! I'm back into a creative realm so be ware.... there will be more... (smiles)
Beth, you brought back a memory. A friend of mine, who's a magnificent artist, was having a tough time.. I don't remember why I was writing him but I said "I paint with words while you write a story with your paints and a brush.." Thanks for jogging up that memory. :-)
Blessings to you all and may your talents and lives flourish and may all your Dreams come true. Love and Light, Nina P.
