A Night Sky

stars-768708_1280By Tobias Haglund

Cold claims, nature stops

December darkness sweeps in

The stars and the moon seem unreal, a distorted mirroring

They shine upon the snow sheet

Entirely still

Even dogs halt to look

Somewhere inside it feels like somebody among all of these millions of stars is looking at us, right now

On the lawn of an abandoned world stands a youngster who is looking up at a rarely snow-free night sky

A simple touch can break the beautiful spell

But nothing. No one comes

    1. That’s very kind of you. Thanks for your kind words. Your words really do warm this Swede who looks upon the coming winter like that youngster looks up towards the stars. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Adam. Yes there is quite something magnetic about the stars during the winter nights. I’m listening to Nils Frahm now (didn’t know of him before). Thanks for the tip!


    1. Thank you. I agree. I don’t know how it is where you live, but here in Stockholm, Sweden, it is already very dark during the afternoon. Thanks for your kind words.
