Night's Calling - Carry On Tuesdays Prompt

"A cloudless night like this
can set the spirit soaring"
when above my head
freckles of light wink.

Far away places call
with each twinkle of sparkling charm.
I wonder who is gazing like me,
at each trail left behind by falling stars.

Could I join the night,
I too would softly
caress each precious light
announcing it's unique individuality.

Yes, " A cloudless night like this
can set the spirit soaring", yearning
for tomorrows night.

I liked the "freckles," too!

This is so lovely. I love the "freckles of light" and wondering who else might be looking at the stars. Beautiful!
