Clear Mind Starlight City — Poem 25 on Day 25 is here

This one took a minute but it is here!  Poem 25 on Day 25! 

 

Clear Mind  Starlight City                 Max Wolf Valerio

 

stars lash the sky as wind

slips

buildings

 

                           and —

it’s time to step out

from the distance

to what is close

 

to examine

what is clearly visible  —

 

even the starlight

filters through

fog to

rooftops

 

just as this leaning city is visible

from those tarry rooftops —

once the lights are on

all night

and there’s a roaring

 

what is visible can be

hypnotic

and what can be heard

overcomes

 

the strongest fears

and the slightest hesitancy

 

undone, all undone  —  in bright spangling   

                           clarity     —  

the will

of starlight                to bring still

thoughts                       to

attention  —
