Starry Wink

the musings of an overactive mind

Starry Wink

Slowly night settles,
wrapping its cloak around me.
I snuggle in close.

The crisp air crackles.
Harmonies of “goodnight” swell
as beasts go to sleep.

Color bursts skyward.
Tendrils of pink and red spread.
The sun bids adieu.

While stars wink and blink their “hellos.”
