Tonight’s the night

Into a hundred nights
I have stared
But not once
Did nights repeat.

All these terrestrial stars
Have their images
Stretched as far
As the brink of lakes.

All the celestial ones
Play peekaboo
Tearing the night and
Hiding in darkness.

Tonight’s the night
That is dearest of all
Tonight’s the night
The wind won’t stall.

These moving images
The mind wants stopped
To rest with one
And etch it forever.

The distant clouds
Are moody and dark
In so many ways
Like the stuff of dreams.

Tonight’s the night
This music was born
Tonight’s the night
Thoughts took form.

One thought on “Tonight’s the night
