the western sky
of myriad stars
the lesser souls
in the night
you and I
to the sky

our solitude" is my favorite part. Smooth flowing read.
This pulled down the shade of a gathering evening for me. Think I'll curl up with a cup of delaughinated coffee and drift into lonely nebulaes to ponder.

"the lesser souls of heaven", and you paint a glorious Venus. Thanks, Peter.

Peter, this is so beautiful and romantic that it should be a companion piece to "the kiss." Just as Venus is the goddess of love, the nighttime is more mysterious and romantic than in the bright sunlight. The consonance in these lines adds a tempo that is just right for love.
