night song

Golden moonlight  Jan 2014

my friend and I go down to the sea
casting our nets into the deep
darkness of the night sky
pulling in our catch of shimmering
stars as they fall heaped
on to our deck their voices
rise into song and we catch
the song and sing
together of the great black blueness
of the deep night sky and the great blue
blackness of the deep night sea
celestial and terrestrial
the song rises into the bowing trees
and the trees sing of stars and sky and sea
and shaking their thorny heads send the stars
falling from the deep dark sky into the deep dark sea
molten and glorious
