Starry Winter Night

A Poem by Poetic License

Dance with me upon the roof of the world,

Whirling whiter shins to its aging insistence,

Beneath silken, black canopy of diamonds and pearls,

Swim with me within the vastness of this moment,

Pausing only to taste the universe glistening upon our lips.

It's beautiful... Well done...
