A Poem for Bowie

I've been wondering about writing a poem dedicated to Bowie (I often think of him like that as years ago his songs used to be introduced as say, "Changes" - Bowie. (Note, do radio stations even introduce songs anymore? I sometimes have a hard time finding out just what an unfamiliar song is or who its artist might be.)

So the idea has been percolating for a while, and finally, I have been able to get a result.

Moonlit Resonance
Serious Moonlight tonight
Shooting stars overhead
Like pieces of time in flight
Starlights toggling on and off in tempo
Matching the vibrations of the music
Escaping gravity into the Universe’s flow
Does this night go on endlessly,
The rhythms, the lights, pulsing in the dark,
Floating around the planet unhurriedly?

But dark canopy slowly is withdrawn 
Waking daylight starts to claim the sky
Time to turn and face the dawn

 …….dedicated to David Bowie
