Star Namers

Warm in the summer
Like skies we were under
At night on the trunk of my car

Uncharted spaces
And strange constellations
Dance to a worn out guitar

Down to the clearing
Where ghosts circle softly
Tell us your stories
In wind-twisted rhyme

Wrapped up in covers
Like strange little monsters
I will steal your heart
If you will steal mine

Fragrance of rain
From the clouds rolling in
Hair down and hearts on our sleeves

we’ve been the storm
Since the day we were born
We come and we go with the breeze

Capture the moonlight
In love-thirsty silence
Hold it for ransom
In passionate stares

Pick out a star
And we’ll say that it’s ours
Then vanish at dawn
Like a vapor of air

    • Yes, there’s nowhere like the country for a night under the stars. I was thinking of a similar experience on a little dirt road out in the middle of a farm that I stopped at randomly on a trip once. Beautiful skies when you escape the city lights. Thanks for the comment!

  1. Such a lovely, nostalgic poem – made me smile. And I just love those last 4 lines!
    (BTW, I just noticed I don’t have you on my blogroll – thought I did – will add you right now!!) It’s always such a pleasure reading your poetry! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. An excellent piece of poetry
