Denied Night Magic -- Poetry 2009

Denied night magic…
no stardust or moonbeams.
Constellation form and pattern
lost to the naked eye.
Cloud masses defy revelation.
North Star or brightest full moon
can’t blast though Pacific Northwest
layers of winter storm stratus…
dark and dreary even during night,
the squalls sweep in from ocean
loaded with moisture for deluge.
Under fluorescent glow of randomly
placed plastic ceiling stars, I wait
for a spellbinding spring night sky.
