Re-Sent for Big Tent

Wordle word prompt from Big Tent Poetry:
resent, praise, hungry, milk, cough, dull, stars, dangerous, comfort, part, dark


stars draw pictures on the night
with a cough of milky light
into the shadows dark

creating comfort art to dull
the dangerous fear that strikes
within the midnight black

dawn gives rise to a longing
a hunger for a greater space
a stellar sky and a sudden breeze

she offers prayerful praise
for dark shadows calmed when
stars draw pictures on the night

Fractal image.

Beautiful imagery, the eloquent mystery of this piece is so wonderfully enticing.

I like how you comment in the second stanza about our lack of comfortableness with the void, the dark...commenting on our collective fear of nothingness. I like your metaphor of the milky light coughed onto the dark canvas of night in the first stanza. Well done.

Nothing more comforting that a clear, star filled night sky, especially with a full moon.

Exquisite piece of work! Brilliant writing.

Beautiful images (the ones Nicole said all caught me, too) -- effective repetition of first and last line.

This felt very soft, draemlike, and gentle to me...quite lovely!

I love that opening stanza, and the piece is complemented so well by the fractal.

I love "dark shadows calmed" -- such a powerful image. there is such a difference when the stars are visible.
