night sky




The moon and stars are all tucked in

beneath their cloudy coverlets,

trees gathered round to tell stories

and hear goodnight prayers.

It is a lovely image, Leslie and a beautiful photo. I like "cloudy coverlets" a lot, nice alliteration and soft sound. It does sound cozy! I just took some pictures of the sun setting tonight too. Guess we were thinking the same way but mine are still in my phone.

I love the personification of the stars, moon, and trees---gives an extra oomph to the verses--lovely writing, Les. Beautiful pic.

This was just right to read as I am getting ready to retire to my room early for the night to enjoy solitude and pray for others, started a new job this week so I am a little overwhelmed and tired,
Wishing you a restful night!
