Night Fall: A #30in30 Poem

Trees Dusk and Stars - poetry









I watched the stars appear

as the sky deepened

from pastel to cornflower

to true blue, electric blue,

and then, at last, midnight.


It was God’s watercolor painting.

vivid hues subtlely streaking

fading into each other.


It took a moment

after the sky dimmed

before the pinpricks,

like lightning bugs,

sparkled to life.
