(044) The Night

I sat & gazed
At the dark blue sky
That was as dark
As a blueberry pie.

My mom called me in
To have apples red
And then she sent me
Off to my bed.

I sat & gazed
From my window sill
The stars up there
That stood so still.

They touched my heart
They made me squeak
As I watched them
Looking so very meek.

I sat & gazed
With drowsy eyes
As I fell asleep
Waiting for sunrise.

    Risha,

    I absolutely loved this poem. It definitely is a 10 like Doc said. I loved the imagery and I have often done the same thing.

    I enjoy gazing up at the stars and sky at night. It is like a whole new world up there. It is captivating and the sky illuminated with stars is mezmerizing.

    Great job!

    Carrie
