Pearls in the nighttime sky,
Surely they must be the light of angels.
Visible to the mortal eye,
Things of myth and divine fables.
Twinkling hope from up above,
Promising man a life here after.
Quieting the mind and heart with love,
Giving joy with bouts of laughter.
Adhara, Nashira, Mira, Alcyone,
Shining from the heavens beyond.
Watching, protecting ‘til time on earth is done,
Guiding their charges to the calm.
~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
Who are Adhara, Nashira, Mica and Alcyone?
I’m glad you asked…they are the names of stars in various constellations. I chose them firstly because I like the name and I liked the meaning of the name. Believe me, I’m no astronomer, I had to look them up. 🙂
My kind of poem….:)
A bit lighter than most of my recent work, I’m glad you liked it. 🙂

How kind of you to say, thank you so very much. 🙂
“Guiding their charges to the calm” is my favorite line in this, though I love how it was about stars. I adore stars.
Thank you Martha, I love that line the most as well. I’m very glad that you liked the poem. 🙂
excellent piece and title.
Thank you very much, something a little lighter than what I have been writing lately. 🙂
