October Midnight Sky

I stare in wonder, unable to turn my eyes from the October midnight sky
The heavy darkness presses down on me taking the breath from within
The stars pierce my soul like a thousand tiny needles

Never have I felt so small
Never have I felt such awe
There are countless mysteries calling
 waiting to be discovered
So many that should be known
So many that never will
October midnight sky 
Your silence is my call

    I love the moods imparted by the words of this poem and love the parting emphasis on silence. I'm sort of working on one titled 'Silence Speaks,' so this sort of thing resonates with me already. Mark
