A cultural perspective of the night - Nocturne
Nocturne

As darkness swallows up the evening skies
with twinkling stars and opalescent moon,
seldom such glory graces human eyes
that weakens knees and makes the hearty swoon.

How grand is heaven’s portrait after dark—
a gift to gaze upon the gods of old.
Silent epistles long forgotten mark
the signs and seasons ready to unfold.

Behold creation’s dance of fiat lux1,
those steady rhythmic orbits scored in light.
Mystical choreography conducts
the strength and beauty fashioned by the night.



fiat lux: (latin) let there be light
