Our Universe At Midnight

Through harmony of air and light
filling the crisp clear ice cold sky
heralding the rising star in the deep blue night
before the moon shines high
and the heavens turn black
and the star strewn band of light,
so pretty, so fair, so intensely bright
protruding in places far and dear
shows us the depth of our universe
and how microscopically tiny we are here.

and then the mighty heavens bow down and kiss us
with beautiful phrases of shadow and light
mystery and twinkle eyes
all over the huge dark twirling skies
out here in deep deep outer space
a billion pin point steady rays
of colour and light in a wispy maze
of giant kaleidoscopes, brilliant and bright,
spread across the vast starry extend
of our universe at midnight.
