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
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
tonight the stars are unmistakable.
