Twinkles in the Dark

Twinkles in the Dark

A Poem by Jesse W.

Twinkles in the dark
Fairies dancing in the night
Small lights in the black

Stars shine their light down
On large fields and blue oceans
And all treasured lands

Tiny blips of dust
Hanging in twilight and dark
Suspended above

Echoes in midnight
Heavenly lights long since passed
In star dust and flame

Remembered only
In glowing islands of light
Twinkles in the dark

Truly truly marvellous! The way you have seamlessly woven together time/space/distance - indeed star-dust looking up at star-dust! 'islands of light' and 'treasured lands' - constellating the above with the below!

Hanging in twilight and dark

Thank you very much :) It's my favorite painting, and one of my favorite poems I've ever written.
The images that form in my head when I read this are beautiful! I loved how it was a short burst of beautiful imagery put into a poem about light and dark
