Graced by ethereal
beauty of dark sky,
tantalizing to senses
spellbinding in far cry,
My own world
lost into beauty....rare,
to nature's glare.
Energy for earth to revive in sprinkle,
magnificence lost to stars far twinkle,
Essence captured to moments grown,
lost into shadows against horizons own....
Enchantment... lost to such grand nature's tune,
immortal born in grace standing,
timeless still like the sand of dunes.
Lights forming a firework in display,
reviving heart in careless thoughts of day.
Blinking from past to present...a cabaret,
to the eye awakening,
the sense of dazzling display....
