Last Night....Australian Sonnet

Last night, when on the brink of finding sleep,
my inner sun arose above dark clouds.
She climbed on high, while throwing off her shrouds,
on velvet sky, her lightened path shone steep.
I watched in awe, all words and thoughts were gone.
The world was silenced as she filled my view,
while deep inside an inner peace now grew
in which all pain and angst became undone.
I looked into her face and closed my eyes,
yet still I saw her, glowing from within.
New doors were opened as she waved me in-
a place where trust existed, without lies.
As doubt and disappointment disappeared,
all clouds dissolved, until my heart felt cleared.
