We lay on the grass As the clouds began to clear...
Nothing but silence and stars Surrounded us
We huddled under the blanket
Saying Nothing... Just Staring.
Ignoring the world around us.
Exploring the mass of stars above.
Like scattered embers winking down at us, illuminating the darkness...
We gazed for hours
And forgot the world we left on the ground.
“I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night” -Galileo
