Twinkling Specks

Living under a polka dot sky at night Each little speck of light seems so despondent When power is lost and is no longer bright You must look within each sparkling commandment The stars seem to fall down on you this evening Beauty throughout is what I’m truly seeing In the thicket of trees they are deceiving They twinkle more, exactly what’s believing

    Ah Russell, I love that first line. Faith makes the stars shine brighter, looking deeper into everything you can see there is always more behind every situation, and there is always a star shining bright. Great poem sir.
