night rain
has given way
to a sky full of stars
not even the nightjar
wheels this frost blossom sky
too cold and
dark for birdsong.

    1. 🙂 This is actually one of mine, from my first little book of poems called Blue Sky from a few years ago – before i became wise enough to ask others to do the illustrations for me. But it is a starry skied nightjar so i thought it would be a good fit. i did not pull my brother into the craziness of poem a day this year – though i do miss his drawings too.
