Light Show – A Quadrille

Light Show

 

In the Milky Way

A sliver of the moon

Winks in the sky

Like a hook to catch

A fish that might fly

 

The night is glowing

As stars dot the darkness

Like a breadcrumb trail

Brightening your way home

On a galactic scale

      Thanks Gina. I almost went into a nonsense poem at that moment, but refrained! ๐Ÿ™‚
      BTW I love your new photo!

        thank you my sweet friend! i was tickled by the thought of a nonsense poem from you, somehow you always spin your magic with words.

    Like a hook to catch
