One January Night

Even in darkness, colour shines through.
Await dusk, go outside, and look up.
Someone has taken a brush
And spattered the sky with white paint.
Behold the beautiful moon,
Large, resplendent, illuminating.
Dazzling Jupiter takes my breath away;
As does Sirius: super bright star.
Your eyes adapt, look again,
More colours flood through.
Catch the blue hue of Rigel
As Capella twinkles yellow.
Golden Polaris points to the north.
Orange Betelgeuse and Aldebaran
To red, red, red Mars.
Do not be fooled by the night.
Even in darkness, colour shines through
