When night is not contaminated with the lights of civilization, the need for sleep is stolen by the magnificence of the cloudless sky


Milky Way

The soft black of an uncompromised evening sky
Genty moves to ease precursing morpheus’s gift
But clouds of stars steal the quiet of the silent
noise of watching

the sky at night in the country is wonderful. Overpowering in a way. I am afraid I am used to city stars. Nicely done Joe.

There is nothing as humbling as a sky loaded with stars on a clear night when there are no lights around. The most beautiful sight I have ever seen. So well described!
