Young Night

Light can come from anywhere.
The Sun won’t interfere
Though earlier it owned the sky.
The Moon is full. The buildings rise.
The snow-like stars and star-like snow
Reminds one of the cold.
There is a bridge from here to there
And back again from there to here
Off-center and below
That maps attempt to document.
Is there a narrative in this?
Has someone sent a secret kiss
That sets in motion someone bold?
Is there somewhere some consciousness
That daydreams as the night grows old?
This night’s still young, too wise to care.
It’s cloud-hazed, bright and anywhere.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. There is a lightness to your poem that is beautifully conveyed through the rhyme and rhythm, Frank, and, as Björn said, a symmetry -of almost contrasts in ‘The snow-like stars and star-like snow’, the ‘bridge from here to there / And back again from there to here’, and young and old. Lots of questions to ponder, too.

    1. Thanks! That snow occurred around early December. Those early snows are beautiful because the weather is still warm and the snow sticks making it great for snow sculptures which we haven’t done since our children were young. Now it is just as good to walk in it.

    Good question! One often wonders where the wild imaginations do park themselves in the vast unknown eventually! Wonderful take, Frank!
