Gift of the Night

The gift of the night is the universe
Opened up like a black tulip
Petals uncurling in the light
Of all the suns that ever were.

The gift of the night is the universe
Sky’s barrier broken down
Eyes reach as far as they can
No horizon to this verse.

The gift of the night is the universe
History sent through photons
Ancient wishes and dreams
Twinkling not quite forever.

The gift of the night is the universe
Feet rooted and head reaching high
Hands grasping at infinity
Climbing the great dark tower.

The gift of the night is the universe
And I will unwrap it.
