In Blue

The evening sky rests upon a cobalt blue comforter 
As pinpoints of light descended downward through the heavens 
Constellations standing steadfast in a slow drift 
As the earth rotates slowly beneath them 
From Orion to Ursa Major 
They stood together for the casual viewer 
I have often wondered how that star that stands alone 
Feels in its seclusion 
Sometimes the loneliest star shines the brightest 
But will we appreciate its beauty? 
Lost in a cast of “billions” 
Some have long burned out 
Appearing only as a memory 
Passed on from light years away 
Diamonds that glitter in an endless sky 
A voice that drowns in its silence 
As planets tiptoe slowly 
an eternal dance unfolds 
In Blue
