Night’s Apron

Before first light
night spreads its apron
upon the lap of the earth
gathering starlight;
while ant sleeps
rare gems of silence
glisten in the dark.

    Sigh….beautiful reminder of my ocean voyages of no light pollution; no building nor mountain blocks—pure apron for 180 degrees longitude. Thank you.

    Regarding the apron, mit also has strings that will be evident on 8/21/17 as the eclipse crosses over here in Oregon cutting a narrow band about 75 miles wide from the Pacific to the Atlantic dark as night for a very short stay. Another wonder of nature, time to wake up!
