Sugar drops melt into white stars,
Set in the fabric of black velvet sky.
Flicker brilliantly, these crystal shards
Whisper lullabies to fleeting clouds.
They spin across the misty horizon,
Guarding heaven’s gates, so proud
The moon dubious in her absence.
Dazzling dusk has just begun,
Waiting to lose her innocence.
