# 12 Glowing Night

We parked the Jeep

and watched the moon rise over the lake.

Only a few clouds

glowing

with the glory of the moonlight.

The entire sky lit up with stars,

a universe-sized canopy of fairy lights

The baby fell asleep

in her car-seat.

We watched

for shooting stars

until

we

fell asleep,

too.

  1. Beautiful poem! I just came back from a week up north and this poem really resonated with me. I love the imagery and yo
    ur use of metaphor. These lines really resonated with me…

    It is so dark up north…the stars twinkle that much more brightly and yes, the universe unfolds. I loved the tone of your poem as well-excellent!
