Starry Night

Standard

Night fills the valley.
swarming armies rise to crest
to fiery west.

The battle is done.
tumbling stars overturning
pale winter’s stark sun.

One thought on “Starry Night

  1. Steven, these are absolutely, like all of your poetry, first rate. The images in them are especially strong. They give me a cosmic feeling about the largeness of the end of day.
