    Except for the moon
    The sky is lifeless
    A sheet of black
    As far as the eye can see
    So strange this night
    There are no stars

    Counting them
    A form of peace
    The concentration more than intense
    No other thought can enter my mind
    Still, I lose count as I near one-hundred
    There will be no mathamatical exercise tonight
    Where are the stars?

    I am spoiled
    Staring at their three demensional depth
    Each night I try to find Leo, Virgo and the archer himself
    But not tonight
    There are no stars

    Are they hiding behind a midnight sky
    Dancing privately with each other
    Taking a break from my enchanted eyes
    I feel I should knock on thin air
    "Can the stars come out and play?"
    There is no answer
    The stars are not home
    I must find them in my dreams

    BE

    There it is ...

    The stars I see are not in your dreams, but they sparkle through your words and insight of the night time sky ... they express themselves in you .. YOU are a star ... but a name astrologers cannot announce, only you can releasethe illicit glare that you allow when you rest with the other stars and fall into anothers dream.

    This is nice ...
