Night walk

Night walk

Stepped out last night
            to take the evening air
After a flawless blue sky
            during the day
the heavens completely clear
            a black bed of bright stars

I raise a hand and wave
            to the distant neighbours
we go back a long way
            in fact we’re practically family
and it’s comforting to think
            that there may be someone
out there waving back to me
            it’s not a claustrophobic cosmos
