Audacious night is out there
scattering poems again
like snowflakes, frost or fallen stars,
all over the street of the sky.
Full of wonder,
at the open window,
all I can do is watch carefully
in case night accidentally
drops one in my lap.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Sanaa’s Challenge: On the edge of starry night, also linking up to dVerse Poets Pub Open Link Night and Poets United Poetry Pantry
This week, Sanaa has shared a beautiful poem by e.e. cummings entitled ‘The Hours Rise Up Putting Off Stars And It Is’, which she says completely blew her away – it did the same to me.
Sanaa says our frame of reference is the last line of this poem, which is: ‘in the street of the sky night walks scattering poems’; and that we can choose our own form or write in free verse.
