I canít get
to sleep tonight.
Awake; I ponder
late night life.
is peace and still,
and yet a thrill.
put on a display
the forest of trees.
They light at will;
and it seems,
They are doing it
to show me.
Above stars twinkle
in the dark mist sky,
in the leaves;
glimmers of Light
From heaven to earth
and in my life.
