Nighttime Lights

By Oren Milgrom-Dorfman  age 11

 

I go outside, to watch

I look through a window, to see

City lights,

Windows glowing like squares of sun

Lampposts shining like starry skies

 

I go outside, to watch

I look through a window, to see

Sunset lights,

Red car lights flowing like rivers

Clouds turned pink like cotton candy

 

I go outside, to watch

I look through a window, to see

Star lights,

Constellations scattered like drops of milk 

Planets small as seeds

 

Then I go inside, to watch

I turn away from a window, to see

Heart lights,

Love as bright as countless suns

Joy like all the stars in the sky
