staring up at a sky full of stars

staring up at a sky full of stars

A Poem by rivers

just a flock of birds 

in the midnight sky 

rhapsody beheld in dreamful eyes ,
staring up at a sky full of stars

oh ! 
      oh !
           sweet creation ! 
what a hallowed solace 
enchanting near and far

wolf moon atop 
the rising wintertide ,
lies low and over head ; 
halo around 
the winged moon’s
old yellow aglow , 
reflecting from 
a higher plateau
--- upon 
the snow covered fields 
                      of winter

and if I had a broken wing ,
lost and forgotten 
in the cold fields of winter ,
who’s to say I cannot fly away ?
for love is 
the greatest healer known

            rise up ! 
   rise up ! 
                   above shadowed 
winter night ,

spirit of all wind 
uplift the wings of love and light ,
for love is 
the foremost purpose bestowed ,

love is the greatest harmony sung 
joyfully --- taking flight
