After Dark

It is then that we are most free, after all

We can look at the black above us

And imagine ourselves as planes

Riding through the night sky

Tourtured and tempted by the burning stars

Too far away to be touched,

But bright enough to be seen.

When the sun goes down

We can gaze as the constellations

Remain the same through ever-changing life.

We find beauty in the dark,

While science and silence rob the earth of her light.

We stand in awe and the others are omitted

They sleep and slumber,

When we wish to be permitted.
