Absolutions

Listen
to the silence
adrift in the brittle sky...
and behold pointed fingers
of mute admiration

My hand
belongs to yours
in this solitude of night
as you show me without words
the miracle of stars

We glimpse 
her bare shoulders,
as Venus brushes her hair,
tumbling in the darkness
like a quiet snowfall

    yes, I used to be a keen amateur astron years ago, and I gotta say the main memory imprinted from nights gazing through telescopes is the immutable silence of the vast black emptiness...wow it is a bit overwhelming....and you have captured it in this poem...an accurate picture of space, with its emptiness and its beauty....another excellent work, Carrie....me likes it muchly
