“A sky of staggering beauty”

A sky of staggering beauty 
arches over the dominion below 

As gracious boughs of skeletal trees 
stark black ‘gainst the vernal heavens 
Stretch fingers of finest ebony 
far into the realm of midnight 

Where dreams and visions prevail 
amid the whispered mysteries 
that pervade the hours of darkness 

When a violet glory blooms awhile
in the nocturnal shadowlands 

While an opal moon
dispels the darkness 
And scatters its soft light
through the celestial scape 

Where a myriad stars rejoice 
amid the infinite opulence 
Of an endless firmament 
ever attired in perpetual tranquility
