Aspects of Starlight

*Here’s a slightly modified poem from long ago. If I posted it before, I hope you won’t mind reading it again. Blessings to you!*

Aspects of Starlight

There once were stars, held high within that black

Expansive tapestry of nightly shade.

They guided my despairing soul through bleak

Uncertainty, and fearfulness allayed.

I found in them the ancient heroes viewed

Adventuring, great beasts and men adorned

Resplendently–their noble traits imbued

My thoughts, and gave me strength while I still mourned.

Eclipsed in adolescence, I had seen

The starlight shimmering above, spun lace

Of spider’s thread, and trying to stay sane

Reclaimed those aspects blindness can’t efface.

Illumined is my memory. There once

Were stars, and for me there is recompense.
