The stars on navy black nights
wink at humans who stare up at the lonely glimmer of the moon.
The mystery girl sits on the dusty pewter gray surface
her lanky legs hanging down, dangling above the world she knew so well.
She hums a lullaby for the people to drift off to sleep,
into the world of dreams.
Where the world’s sins and rainy days are forgotten,
where there is a new glimmer of hope for each and every one of us.
The map in the center sets us on our path to destiny,
and at the end of the day,
the mystery girl dances among the stars.
