Accustomed lines

Beneath the huge
Night sky,
There are only those
Dark palms – fingering.
Jumping silver fish.
Startling.
The inky flow carries
A stray fisherman.

It’s easy to see you
With my closed eyes
In the midst of
Mirth and merry making.
Wistfully, I look-
The smile playing on your face,
The frosted glass between us.
Always just outside,
The steady flow of your life
.
Beneath the darkness,
And, the dim stars,
I idly connect the dots
And see dull
Predictable patterns.

A poem that I wrote. Appreciate your comments.
