Slow Dance

When night fell,
the clouds withdrew,
like a curtain 
opening on a dark stage.

After midnight,
I took my place,
to watch
the silent performance.

Intermittently,
Perseus streaked
through the scene.
Each time a quick surprise.

While white stars
continued
their slow dance
across the black sky…

to the music of
universal silence.
