I Adore the Night Time Sky

    Looking at the sky at night,

    the stars, as countless people in the ancient days have done, and down the centuries and millennia since, is a renewing pastime to pursue. Connecting with my forebears in this way is both adoring and grounding. To lie on the earth and espy the constellations is very interesting...

    It's just another night

    and I'm staring at the moon. I saw a shooting star, and thought of you. I sang a lullaby by the waterside and knew. If you were here, I'd sing to you. You're on the other side, as the skyline splits in two. I'm miles away from seeing you, but I can see the stars from America. I...

    I live on a small Scottish island

    so the sky is usually clear at night. My house has a flat roof and when it's not too cold in a starry night I love to climb up on to the roof and lie down and just take in the magical view. When looking at the stars, I think about how big the world is and how there are so many...

    It's really peaceful to just sit outside

    and listen to the wind blow through the trees, rustling branches, leaves brushing together.. It's soothing to me. I never thought tonight's sky would be so beautiful. It truly makes me happy.

    Yesterday is by far the best night I've ever

    had. The moon was full with its light shinning out and the stars were just dazzling and sparkling spreading throughout the sky. I've never had the opportunity to lay down and just watch it

    I grew up by a giant lake.

    . every day to go to town I had to cross a large bridge and back. My favorite memory of the night sky happened on that bridge. The moon was at its peak, a harvest moon but the largest one I had ever seen, and it reflected the soft orange light across the dark water. It seemed to...

    I can see us there, your arms around me.

    Your beautiful face illuminated by the glow of soft moonlight. You put your hand on my cheek, u lean in and kiss me softly. you lay me down into the soft grass our bodies merge as one under a blanket full of stars.

    Someone once told me

    that a beautiful night is the darkest hell alone. And it's not that I can't find someone, that's easy. It's that no one is willing to devote or stay.

    I absolutely love being out in the bush,

    well away from city lights and being able to lay on my back watching the stars. It really puts the trivial issues in life back into perspective :)

    It's five in the morning

    and I'm on a pier in the middle of the ocean with three friends. The night sky is a perfect dark curtain above me, with the moon peaking his shy face through. The wind pulls in the storm clouds in from the north. They're full of gentle consolation and mightnight tears to cool...

    One of my favorite memories is swimming at

    night in the pool, relaxing, and gazing at the stars. I would turn all the lights off in the house so I could see the stars better.

    I love sitting outside,

    late at night just staring up at the sky... no matter how alone I feel... I know there's someone else looking at the same moon... same stars as I am... and then I don't feel so lonely.

    Last night I jumped in to the sea without

    even taking off my clothes, cause I just didn't feel like bothering about that; and I was swimming and looking at the sky, and the stars, and all that neon city lights were shining and gleaming; and I was really happy to be alive

    The night sky is so clear

    where I live. It's mostly unpolluted by light. I sometimes go to the places where the shadows are darkest, and just admire the vast sky filled with stars.

    Beaitiful darkness cut only by rhe light of a

    full moon. This is my quiet time. My time to day dream without interruption. my time to let my heart soar among the clouds, over space and time. To descend from the heavans into your lovimg arms. Time to be with my wolf.

    I grew up in the country.

    ..such a difference now from living in the city where the lights drown out the beautiful night sky. I remember during my teen years, I'd go outside after sunset. The night sky would have already settled in on its canvas. I'd grab my trusty blanket and climb into my dad's pick...

    When I was 12 I lied to this boy

    and told him I was 15. He just turned 17. And months later after when he wanted to date me I told him the truth. He told me I know this is wrong but the way I feel for you I can't let it go and I want us more than anything. And so only a few of our close friends knew about us...

    Com'on J, lets go for a midnight boat excursion.

    Let me sit next to you and watch as we slowly glide over the calm waters. See the night sky reflected on the water. Stars twinkling above us, and stars dancing below us. Let's find a calm little cove where we can just float. Listening to your heart beat as I lay my head on your...

    Something that I've always wanted is to move to

    Iceland (not into the cities but into the country part) where there is just snow and mountains and lakes. I want to get a big, warm comforting house and a big dog like a husky to live with me too. Then every day I'll do cool stuff with my husky, like go walking through forests...
