No Worries in the Sky
As I walked the streets of my town last night
stretching my legs and mind
Saturn and Venus peaked out winking at me
as they swallowed the colors of the trees and homes.
These celestial clowns laughed at my silly worries,
as my pavement steps echoed against lonely walls,
of well-lit, deceptively still houses
where TVs numbed the frustrations and loneliness of others.
I then passed a huge mansion, empty and dark
but there was trash — including and old bedside commode.
And I wondered if the sad soul who used that commode
now giggled amongst the sparkling stars befriending the planets.

Prompt: Open Link night at d’Verse Poets and Björn wonders if we like adding photos to our poems, so I did. These are thoughts from my stroll last night.
