the nights no longer have stars

  1. I love the simplicity of this - the night no longer having stars, only skyscrapers.........I would miss the stars, were I to live in a city.

  3. I would miss the stars too if I was always surrounded by these too tall buildings...wonderful and powerful in these 3 lines.

  5. I do love gazing at stars but am also mesmerized by our city lights especially from the top of one of those skyscrapers or on Mont Royale at our lookout...

  9. I can affirm that the sky is definitely smaller in the city having lived way out in the country to have the vastness of the starry night spread out above me.

  11. Absolutely - to look up and see a sky full of stars should be a given not a luxury

  12. I was raised in New York City. This poem makes me realize how lucky I am now to live near mountains.
