Image result for stars


Quiet as a dove’s eye
Shining in the dark,
Love slipped into their lives,
Pushing aside darkness,
Bringing light blazing
Into uncertain corners,
Demolishing sadness.

This was the night
Stars exploded
Into clean, bright, radiant roses
Of hope and joy.
Whose petals fell silently,
Tenderly,into the desert
Of their lost and aching hearts.

Time for them to change direction,
Time to listen to the silence.
