The stars in the night sky

The stars in the night sky 
hold the obituaries 
of myriad moments 

Each epitaph 
inscribed upon a diamond white speck 

Etched aloft in the heavenly heights 
‘gainst the velvet sheet 
of a violet midnight 
Harvested by the orb of day
and scattered across an infinite expanse 
of powder blue 
From dawn until the hour of dusk 

Then writ in bands of lilac and salmon pink 
at the setting of the sun

Testimonies a many 
displayed across the celestial canvas 
That captures tales of the spirits 
who dwell but awhile 
Amid the land of the living
