universe smiles

when he closed his eyes to sleep
the stars appeared
and through the night
they twinkled and shone

a slow pirouette
danced around the darkness
by glittering sequins
arrayed across the sky

in his dream
he smiled

~

when he opened his eyes awake
the sun was there
golden upon the blue
that became day

the warmth as it touched him
brought a kick of pleasure
his hands waved trying to catch the light
he gurgled in joy

and through the waking hours
he laughed
