Stars, the friendly ghosts of time

When dusk falls

Night upon us

Looking towards

The deep blue

Beautiful

Darkness

For answers

For night

Holds gently

The body’s

Secrets

When

We find

Safety

When we

Don’t

The quiet

Twilight

Gives signs

Stars

The friendly

Ghosts

Of time

Moon

Oh reliable

Shining

Companion

How you

Love the stars

& reflect

Their light

Meaning in

Geology

Of sky

Many

Answers

In the night
