Night – A Poem

The night was heavy with honeysuckle,

Warm and still,

Full of mystery and life,

An immense blackness

Stretching to Eternity,

Clustered with stars.

    This is so beautiful. I love pieces about nature and the skies. I love the smell of honeysuckle and it grows wild all over North Carolina. Thanks for that line especially. Blessings to you Dawn.
