Starlit night

Gaze upon thy heavens on this darkness-filled night,
For sanctuary will be seen in the beacon of light,
However so small that beacon may be,
Even so it feels like a dropp in endless sea,
It pierces the darkness ever encroaching,
Like a momentous dream fast approaching,
And when that sanctuary draws forever near,
Emerald tears of salvation may wash away fate's fears.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
