Wonderstruck In the Clear Night Sky

We're up so high on the mountain top, That the night air is cool and so clean. Moonlit shadows slow dance in leafless drop Free from pollution from the city unseen. We lay gazing in awe, Mercury, Venus, Mars; Wonderstruck in the clear night sky, The first epic theater of shimmering stars Dancing with the North Star that's hanging high. The sounds of the gentle breeze embracing of heaven; Fleeting flash of white light flashing close, While the campfire sheds its soft light driven Unforeseen untamable freedom repose. 11/26/2021 Wonderstruck Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Robert James Liguori Nights spent under the stars while camping with my husband.

Line 7 is most brilliant ( day or night). Thx also for clearing the mystery : high up not in heaven ... Yet ... But camping. Shalom Shalom

Watching the stars since I was very young was and is always so soothing and magnificent. Thank you for the wonderful compliment. Eve
