new moon sky
filled with
starry delight
cracks in heaven's floor
falls upon the shore
of nighttime's
winter dreams
moving slowly
in between
midnight thoughts
& slumbering nods
darkness holds
a long reign
with trails of stardust
in its wake
one single impression

Just breathtaking!
So magical, peaceful...I'm happy to have "discovered" your beautiful blog!

I'll take the midnight thoughts and the winter dreams. I need some of each. The slumbering nods are holding those two back.
I could never have come up with these although they are common notions.

I'm awed by the image of heaven's floor. I just never thought of it that way before. Isn't poetry wonderful?
