A Mind of Stars {A Poem}

milky-way-1030765_640

One must have a mind of stars
To shine boldly in the darkness
Among millions gleaming.
Named by God
Longing to be first
As dusk arrives-
Hearing a child wish upon
For a cancer to be gone
And the wish becomes reality.
Silence reigns in the radiance
Of the heavenly hosts
Led by Maestro Moon.
Until dawn breaks
And the stars scatter
Without a trace
In wake of the morning sun.

-Debbie Neal Crawford
