The Stars in the Night Sky

Before the stars fade away
How to capture their wonder, without cliché?

No “celestial jewels”
No “Pinpricks of light”
No “winking diamonds”
No “gems of the night”
Just…silence.

A deep, dark stillness

Sometimes I wonder
A thousand years back,
The caveman saw the same
It wasn’t just black!

The stars are wise men
Gazing down at you
It may be a cliché,
But that’s because it’s true.
