the crickets sing me to sleep

the night sky
is an elaborately
decorated
quilt
that i sleep under,
its mysteries
forever permeating
my dreams

wherever i am
in the world,
the night sky
brings me peace
and the crickets
sing me to sleep

the crickets
sing me to sleep
with ancient songs
from before
the world
was fully formed

the crickets
sing me to sleep
under the elaborate
night sky

There is something very primal or instinctive about sleeping under the sky, listening to crickets.

I like this very much.. It brings out the feeling of continuance, of our beginnings tied to our present. Well written stanzas. :)
