"Music of the spheres" that only God (and your soul) can listen, understand, appreciate and bless...

The Ballad of Darkness

Tonight, I'll sleep with doors and windows open

So I may hear the stars singing

The ballad of darkness.

And I'll gaze at the frost bitten moon

Turning golden like a splendid outcast

Humming and whistling a wistful tune.

Perhaps I'll go out on that lazing asphalt road too

And stain Its rolling ribs with one moving shadow.

Gracefully undulating like a lyricist's dream,

Have you heard this road ends on the edge of the midnight!

Where comets and meteors flit like insane glowing gnats

Singing amorous sopranos, flaring up the heart of skies..

Have you heard? Have you... Have you...
