night frost heaven

[From November, 2014…]

night has its rewards for those who seek them

and this I will do
exulting tacitly in its beauty

the heavens reveal themselves
in frosty splendor

and the breath exhaled carries today’s griefs
and yesterday’s sorrows up
up up
as sacrificial smoke

clarity in the night

warmth amidst the frost

and all the stars

one could want

 

for company

2 Thoughts to “night frost heaven

  1. Dear No Talent For Certainty,
    I like your photo for Night Frost Heaven. I also like your poem. I live in the woods and if I am aware than(I think it is then) then I see a lot of stars and a few planets. It is pretty and relaxing to just stand in one spot and look up at the stars.

    I especially like this part of the poem:
    “…clarity in the night
    warmth amidst the frost
    and all the stars
    one could want
    for company”

    The ring of the last two lines are also enjoyable.

    Thank you for sharing your photos and poems. I have like what I have seen so far.
    Sincerely,
    Sam Sutlive.
