Midnight Pearls


                                        Shine, midnight pearls!
                                        The smoke curls up in whirls of doom

                                        On the wet sand 
                                        my own hand draws unplanned pierced hearts

                                        Deep blue-black sky
                                        I play by rules and sigh despair

                                        To lay aside 
                                        starry-eyed dreams that hide a sin

                                        Shine, distant stars!
                                        Through guitars notes, through scars of time

                                        For her first kiss
                                        an abyss drains all bliss from me

                                        And far away
                                        shadows play down their spray of doubts

                                        Opaque pearls, shine!
                                        On this fine night, define my north

    A touching write, Ruben! First time I'd ever thought of the stars as midnight pearls...wonderful imagery! The moon always seems to be given center stage, oh but those stars aren't such a moody lot.:) Best wishes, congratulations on your win! Mikki
