Star Lullabies: Shadorma

The stars sing

shimmery sun songs.


they gambol,

sending their music to us–

magic from the sky.


It tumbles,

spindrift of night seas,

as stars dance

and wander.

Bewitching time lullabies,

lulling us to sleep.

Last week was shadows, and this week seems to be stars. Yesterday a quadrille, today a shadorma for Eliot of Along the Instertice’s November Shadorma Challenge, Day 8.

This is also for dVerse, where Lillian has asked us to write a poem with inspiration from a Hubble Telescope photo. (She supplied four.)
