*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.
