Enjoying Solitude

Lying on the sweet grass.
I gaze at the myriad stars of the summer night,
companions to the Mistress Moon
while a gentle wind caresses my skin in delight.

The silence greets me
with a sense of peace in my solitude
which has eluded my mind
when the strains of the city life intrudes.

Sighing to myself,
I close my eyes to embrace sleep,
enjoying a quiet moment
where I can be alone but not lonely....

I will send you a PM to see what I think you should do with this write.
It has good bones and the theme is good, just a few small things to try to make it flow,
Take care, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Just time for a "quickie" critique. Tense still messing things up a bit lol. Either gaze and caressed or gaze and caresses. Either choice will work fine I think. Lines 3 and 4 in second stanza for an incomplete sentence. I leave it to you to correct . Should be an easy fix.
I could almost feel Myself lying on the grass under a spring moon and drifting off to sleep.......stan

I did some edits. What do you think?
