Alone at Night

Alone at Night

Tonight the stars called to me
I stood
Alone with my bare skin and nightgown dangling
And the window
And the bright stars

The air was cool against me
I watched
The breeze soft and insistent on the curtain
And the trees
And the cloud wisps

And the stars called and winked and whispered
I went
Into the night and across the damp grass
Down the field
To sit alone

And still the stars called to me
I searched
Plumbing the heavens for you and your blue eyes
Past the stars
Into the black

Far into the alone of night

written on the theme of 'alone'

  1. Lovely and ethereal. To me, it felt like a pursuit - or search - for an allusive, exquisite dream or memory. "Far into the alone of night" - an evocative line of poetry. Beautifully written, Susan.
