Quadrille 11 – Stars

Another Quadrille for De’s word prompt of “Spill” over at dVerse.   https://dversepoets.com/2016/06/13/quadrille-11/

spilling across the night sky
stars –
we can look at the blackness
still see the light –
there is a star for each of us
a bit of silent music
a blithe spirit of hope
a reminder that no matter what
we all are one

    Gorgeous, Toni. I love star gazing. When we were in Italy for my daughter’s wedding, my father-in-law, who is 84, insisted we look for the international space station, which he kept calling ‘play station!). He even has an app to tell him when it’s visible. While everyone was waiting for the space station to show, i enjoyed the stars.

      LOL, play station. I kept up with it myself. The newscasters on one of the local stations would let us know every evening where it was and when was the best time to see. Fun!

    One star per dance — one star per person — and all in the one sky! 🙂

    So glad you took this to the heavens, to the heights–freeing us a bit from the density of all that is happening down here.

    Yes, the Milky Way spilled across the sky…and we can shine like diamonds!

    Love this! ❤ It reminds me of my Cassiopeia. Ever since I started working oceans away, one look at Cassiopeia at night and I'm transported back at home. 🙂
