A Quiet Night Alone - Poem by Gayle Sweeney

A full cookie cutter moon is sparkling
Like a pearl brooch dripping with diamonds.
Bright stars are sprinkled across the night sky.
I made a wish upon a star on high.
Heaven stirs in twinkling sweet dish delights.
The moon sails on above sugary white.
Moonstruck silver shines by a cup of blues
While chocolates dip in dreams and dance, too!
