Ekphrasis Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night

Labyrinth in the sky
Needlepoint of Light and Darkness 
Each showing off her more photogenic side
I walk through the maze

 Lucy in the sky with diamonds   
Music plays softly 
Just out of reach
Drawing me deeper and deeper into the maze

I work my way out of the maze
And a big yellow moon is my only witness
I made it!
I made it out of the dark night of the soul
And nobody knows
The village is asleep 
The lights are dim
I'll sleep too
And the sun shall greet me tomorrow 
Like nothing ever happened 

We'll get coffee and go about our day 
Griping and moaning and counting our lucky stars 
As usual

Every night now
I'll look out the window 
I'll wink at the moon

She knows
