Night Sky

Void filled star spangled night sky

Seducing lovelorn red necks

Imprinting visions of patriotic grandeur

 

Void filled star spangled night sky

Mirroring in lover’s eyes

Promising everlasting love

 

Void filled star spangled night sky

Rescuing the souls of the lonely

Dim light brightening their future

 

Void filled star spangled night sky

Guiding light for the lost

Returning them back to the path

 

Void filled star spangled night sky

There for all to see

But received only by the few

      Thanks so much, orchidee, not as eloquent as yours, but getting there!

      A grand write Fred

      • FredPeyer

        Thank you! Coming from a master, this is high praise, indeed! :-)

        By inspired poets such as you and I. This write is as beautiful as the night sky. One of my most favorite past times is star gazing. Thanks for posting Fred.

        • FredPeyer

          Thank you AP, where I live, there are no street lights and very little other light sources, so if is a cloud-less night, the sky is just incredible!

            You must be able to see most of the Milky Way. I get a little more light pollution where I am.

            a fine touch of writing, FredPeyer.

            • FredPeyer

              Thanks so much, Kevin! I try, I try.....

              Very good and very true Fred, so few see.

              • FredPeyer

                Thanks Goldfinch. Too many people are looking down at their feet instead of up!

              • Fay Slimm - - (real name)

                Night sky so appealingly described in this perceptive write Fred - true it's majesty is "there for all to see - but received only by the few"

                • FredPeyer

                  Thank you Fay! Sometimes we do not see the forest because of the trees!

                      I'm afraid I'm one of the few who do not see the "Star spangled night sky". Damn night-blindness! But hey, I'm blessed to have the vision I have!
                      I like the lead-in lines of each phrase repeating as the poem progresses. Nice effect, good write, Fred!

                      • FredPeyer

                        Thanks so much, Louis! I am so sorry about your night-blindness. You don't see anything at night? How about during the day? My sister has MS and her sight is slowly going bad to a point where she has to use a magnifying glass to read the newspaper.

                        • Louis Gibbs

                          My day vision is fine. My eyes just don't dark-adapt at all. I see but a very few of the brightest stars. Thanks for asking, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Fred!

                          Reading your poem under the night sky, fell asleep with star sparkle above.

                          • FredPeyer

                                        Thank you Mike, and they will do it even without you wishing!
                                        What I wish you is a very happy Thanksgiving! Hope you get a big piece of Turkey and at least half a pumpkin pie!
