For the Brightest Star that Tonight We Cannot See

C. Luepkes (2014)

For the brightest star that tonight we cannot see

Blocked by the gentle clouds that will someday clear away

Soon we’ll have autumn moons and still nights

And you can shine like the Parisian lights

Emerge from the night sky with comforted wings

To overcome the whispers of cirrus

I close my eyelids and there you shine

Will you take the risk and come out tonight?

I’ve heard rumors that you are a planet

Others say you belong to Titan

All I know is I want to crawl inside your beauty

Burnished and warm like summer steam

For tonight the sun sets through cumulus

Bursting through the condensation hundreds of nights later

One day you’ll be there to stare back at me

Ancient, yellowish bloom, and gauzy

For the brightest star that tonight we cannot see

Tonight, you are a clarion of reassurance

You need not hold back your brilliance gently

For those clouds do depart occasionally

    1. Thank you, Justine! The message is to hold on. That moments in pain are passing just as the clouds pass over the stars. Hugs and healing to you.
