A Velvet Cloak

the night sky
a velvet cloak upon me
its light in sumptuous folds
drapes me in its vastness
enfolds me in its depths
embraces me in mystic wonder
the night sky
a velvet cloak upon me.

  1. Rosemarie - yes, Velvet - I feel its cold finish slide down my bare soft skin - it is a feeling only known at night - during a dream when we become one with the cold and dark and remain safe.
