All does sleep…

Down below lies a sleeping town
surrounded by the heavenly Paradise
embraced
in the twinkle of the starry eyes
the crescent moon glows
blanketing
the world below in
a surreal light
hushed
lies the moment before
midnight, all lies in wait
ready
for the wind to dance, the stars to gleam
and the sighs of those below who dream

All does live…

Some of the second graders I work with did their own water color versions of Starry Night, I got to say, some did really, really good replicas of it. Good kids.
