Only Stars and Thoughts

As dusk approaches
I grab my notebook and pen
Sit under a tree

I write about life
I feel the breeze on my face
I talk to the wind

This is what inspires
An orange sky calls my name
The light fades away

Moon light shines on me
Here is where my mind finds peace
Only stars and thoughts

Each poem I write
Tells a story of my life
My hopes, dreams, wishes

Time everlasting 
Return to this other world
Until the next night

***For Francine Roberts contest, “Morning, noon, or night senryus”***
