A Star Lit Sky

Standing here surrounded by the all consuming darkness,
as the night draws on
The clouds begin to whisper away
Revealing an incredible display

Suddenly the stars light up the sky
As though the lights came on millions of years into the past.
The dying embers of once magnificent stars,
shining back to us.

It is an awe inspiring explosion of light into the expanse of the heavens.
They scatter the sky like diamonds.
That are precious in their own way.
Moments like this are remembered for a lifetime.

Its times like this that you realise how small you are
and how vast the universe is.
The awe inspiring realisation of it all.
That the display was put on just for you.
