The night the Milky Way disappeared

it was past midnight

on a balmy night

I lay back

on a comomile lawn


there lay before me

a creamy feast for the eyes

luminous bands of stars

stretching across the sky


the charming seven sisters beaming with broad smiles

a five jewelled glistening harp

the northern cross disguised as a beautiful swan shimmering in the milky sky

the lion shining bright making the virgin to its east blush


intoxicated with comomile perfume

and hypnotized by the hooting owl

I took comfort in the arms of Morpheus

and the milky way disappeared



◄ Just another lie

Kingfisher betrayed ►

Lockdown has definitely brought us back to nature. It's the biggest entertainment that one can enjoy forever.

This is beautiful.
