Tonight I Look Up [repost]

Trees moon stars

I painted my dreams–
They reached to the moon,
Yearning and stretching
In violet and blue.

They got caught on the trees,
Shredded and torn,
Scattered like mist,
All gone by the morn.

Tonight I look up
Through pitiless dark
And find my old dreams
Glittered with stars.
