Black Diamond Night

The moons abandoned all the stars.
All that is left is Venus and Mars.
The endless depth of nightly vision.
Draws from your sight with it's incision.

Imagination's all there is to let you see what's there.
With naked eye, you just lay back and stare up in the air.
And if by chance you fall asleep and wake up on the lawn.
There's not a dream more wonderful to bring you to the dawn.

    A great way to spend the night Robert, what a wonderful way to describe the mystery as the "endless depth of nightly vision". I would say that is perfection for me to drift with. Lve, Elizabeth

    Yoo hoo !! Another contest winner..Congrats. I can see why...love this. Around here we'd be a mosquito feast if we fell asleep on the lawn, but what a lovely thought, waking up and seeing the dawn of a new day. !! I'm kinda into imagination and fantacy right now...enjoying the journey. If one has no romance in life...then on paper the universe becomes playing field. Glad you liked my last two poems. Enjoy your poem as well !! I think we've both grown, poetically.
