All is well in the sky tonight

The sky quivers tonight

Stars dart across an infinite canvas

Hesitant to mark their spot on the black

 

Something’s amiss in the stratosphere tonight

Why else does the moon wear its knowing face?

That neither welcomes bedlam, nor turns it away

 

The planets tango in frantic haste

Defiant that the music will stop

But it will. Stop.

 

The sky is so fragile tonight

She may just shatter into a million pieces

And lay scattered across perpetuity’s floor

 

The sun casts her rays in apology

For what her light may reveal

Scenes of menace burst from her beams

She longs for the dark tonight

 

And then. Stillness envelopes the uneasy sky

The stars align in perfect constellation

The moon nestles into a tranquil smile

As the planets lovingly skip to a halt

The sky exhales a cosmic breath

That pacifies the sun’s raucous rays

 

All is well again in the sky tonight.
