Night with Stars

This sky is filled with such light
     As you cannot find in cities glaring,
Wasting its breath on one sure glimpse
     Of what plays behind the night's reach.

An aura, shifting and dancing,
Stretches over the shell of the world,
     As the flood in my body
     Rushes to ascendancy.
