Indigo Sky

 

 

Stars twinkle in the indigo sky

Like notes to a score heard only by me,

To catch the rhythm of the nite

And ride it to the heavens.

 

 

Holding tight to angel’s wings,

Watching the meadow with owl’s eyes,

Knowing there is life here in these dark shadows.

 

 

Brimming with the almost imperceptible sound of moths and fireflies,

I cock an ear listening to the music of

little mice feet scurrying, mouths nibbling.

The evening symphony, surely missed by those who do not notice.

 

 

Under the stars twinkling in the indigo sky

Like notes to a score heard only by me,

To catch the rhythm of the nite

And ride it to the heavens.

Many evenings, as the sun slips from the sky, and darkness descends slowly, I love watching the fireflies, listening to the night noises and seeing the first stars twinkle.  The sky turns from pink or purple to a beautiful Indigo.  It is even more beautiful just when the moon is rising.  This poem came to me one of those evenings.

  1. Indeed, there is so much beauty in the night sky, if only people look up & around & also listen to life all around! You have expressed it so well.

  2. the night never really sleeps, and i think it’s how we adjust and tune our eyes and ears, and see how much life there is at night.
    i enjoyed reading your poem, and how you structured it. 🙂

  3. I always think I should follow the moon like reading subtitles in a foreign film and have written about the moon as a shell that I turn my ear towards to hear the ocean. I like the idea of the stars as notes.

  4. What an inspiring sky, dearest Donna .. you’re right, silence doesn’t mean loneliness, expecially that of the night, is filled with so many little sounds, for who can hear them … of course !
    Thank you darling friend for your sensitiveness, your poetry sounds so delicate to my heart !

    Hope you had a lovely Sunday, I’m wishing you a most wonderful new week ahead, sending my dearest love to you

  5. Hello Donna, beautiful images and mosaic. I love the pretty indigo sky and moon capture. Your poem is lovely, I love watching the sky. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  6. this touches the fiber of my soul for i too have written many a piece through the whispers of the night, the tiny voices, the tiny feet that i sometimes think no one else sees or hears. gracias for such loveliness.

  7. Love this Donna! Would be nice to see it in Rural sometime.
    Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  8. Hello,Donna
    The moon in the indigo sky is beautiful! Such a beauty in the stillness!
    Your poem is so lovely. I like the words
    ” To catch the rhythm of the nite
    And ride it to the heavens”
    Happy day for you, Donna.

  9. The evening symphony, surely
    missed by those who do not notice.

    This has a lot of relevance to those not poetically inclined. They somehow miss out on little things that matter that poets tend to pick up!
    Very true Donna!

    Hank
