midnight lullaby

Listen to poem:
ivory stars stay silent,
soaring into a midnight
lullaby-
gleaming toward tomorrow;
fearing not death,
accepting the universe as
their eternal fate

softly, stardust
f
    a
l
    l
s 
below...
      and I am in awe

stars ignite where
depth knows not an 
end, 
where light and dark
dance creating an aria
of kaleidoscopic brilliance

clouds gather to see the
shooting stars;
oceans divide and ravens
sing tunes of cosmic beauty

as I lay upon my bed watching the stars soar by, 
I feel the gentle solace of a midnight lullaby
