Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

"Night Combing Her Hair With the Moons": by local artist Margo Datz - Painter, Illustrator, Murialist

Winter Nights on the Island go like this.

It is 3:14 am.
I awaken from a deep sleep.
It is 12 degrees Fahrenheit out.

The pipes on the forced hot water heater go blub, blub.
The meter on the propane tank goes tick, tick.
The dollar signs in my mind's eye look like $$.

But I look out the window to see something like this.

Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh
                                        And I know I ... am a lucky girl.

Have a Good One. :)
