*Not of this earth*

Nothing, not even an ocean,
can douse the weeping fire.
as thorns spear the night
blood stains a constellation

Clouds of stars swathe
reflecting only in my eyes,
goodnight mortals, sleep,
as Amun-Ra rides the light

The thousand billion orbs
contour around horizons,
I, in my robe gasp in awe
that I may bear a witness

There is no sound in heaven
but that of my sighing lips,
there is no dawn on earth
but of mans own creation

Nut softly drapes the veils
crepuscular cedes to dark,
elation fills my veins, again
I meet the dim afore dawn

Holding the moon in one hand
as inspiration drapes the other,
relinquishing my corporal form
I slowly vanish into the ether

Beware all you nightcrawlers
bewitching are these sights,
far consumed in this beauty
I am not made of this earth.
 
Come,
lay on this fabric brushed heaven,
Let go your chattal and worth.

Wow long time no speak !!! Awww thanks so much for the read and visit. I'll be popping round your way later today. If you do have any suggestions I'd be grateful normally don't have trouble with titles
Seems I'm a bit rusty in that area.

Thanks so much for the Wowza big smile. As always I'm never sure till I post them if they are any good.

Love and hugs J x

with eyes that see the stars so. Many, many great lines here! I would only change the last line so that it reads: "Let go your chattel and worth". You have already used the word relinquish [which has a typo].
I feel that it has a more powerful attitude, to say; "Let go". All in all, as great as anything you have done. The title is alright.
P.S. You might want to add "Nut" as the mother of Ra, who swallowed him every night and gave birth to him every day at dawn. You could say; "Nut, softly drapes the veils". Just a suggestion, use it or not.

Omg I missed that typo and I checked it a few times thanks for pointing that out. I love your suggestions in both cases. I will change that when I do the edit. I really dont like this title it just seems too vanilla considering the content. I usually have no problem with titles but this one eludes me.

Thanks so much for the suggestions and the visit I'm so hsppy you liked this one.

Love and higgliest bugs Sis xxx

Edit:- I've applied both of your suggestions see what you think :)

the changes! Not so much because I suggested them, but because I truly feel that you have written something really great and I am glad to have been able to help you smooth it out. You have written some really good stuff in the past, but this seems to have surpassed a lot of it. ~ Love and higgest bugs, ~ Bro.
