Observing The Night - Poem by Gerry Legister
That night on Earth stormy banks,
Winter snow cast a shadow over the houses,
And forbid urgent journeys over sea and lands,
Ice winds could not melt the frozen castles.
To bring warmth to the rooms and bodies,
But the breeze parted and a terrestrial rain,
Came hurtling through the dormant skies,
Imparted mystery and twinkling wisdom.
Those awaken did not see stars soaring high,
Advancing sight the orb arose in new birth,
Having flames of dust to lighten up the sky,
That night would illuminate all of earth.
With moon beams and new hope of aspiration,
Breathtaking energy found our stunned world,
We never thought it could capture our imagination,
And leave us utterly out of control.
That night gazing at the sky unassumingly,
We did not see the visitor from a highway leap
Suddenly over dreams to brighten a lower vicinity,
When all we wanted to do was go hastily to sleep.
