s t a r r y night


a little star breaks up the sky,
twinkling sweetly at the next.
it smiles and flutters
and coyly laughs
at the big bright light above.
it dances by itself
in twirls and swirls
and gleeful eights
under the shining veil.

glancing down, it sends a twinkle
and wishes for
sweet, sweet dreams of those
below.
