I gaze endlessly into the sky

Sitting tall and calm on a moonless night
the air stirs cool and fresh,
reminiscent of colder times the
wind softly makes its way through
the branches
woods (trees)
huff and sway,
bending soundlessly to the rhythm
of the unraveling sky.

the city lights blaze bright under my feet and
tickle my eyes, lashes wearing tips of red, white and yellow:
glow a constant blur into my memory.

head up chin to the clouds
and the sun sets ever so gently

can never remember a constellation
but

tonight the stars are unmistakable.
