‘Like a lamp’

like a lamp 
adorning the vast empty 
that exults in the celestial canvas 
as it arches above the world 

the orb of night 
as old as time 
dispels the darkness that freely abounds 
in the cool halls of nighttide 

when the shadows  
roam amid the stillness 
of the deserted scape 
where silence holds court

and the sky assumes a cloak of violet hue 
as the pale moon 
casts a soft glow of cream
across the realm entire 

faithful guide 
of the midnight traveller 

guardian of the land of dreams
