Poetry: “Dreaming of the Dark Night Sky” is the first publishing of the poetry of Bergés Alvarez. By day, he oversees many of the inner workings of a medical organization. But beneath the dark night sky, he dreams in poetic stanzas. Deep in his heart is a yearning to reflect and grow and come to understand the greater meanings of our every day lives.

Drawn to it,
one must catch sight of dawn’s
young soft glow.
A slight streak of restful radiance,
against the silent black night sky.
Fresh, mysterious, gentle and warm,
delicate and intricate.
It calls out faintly
shows its beauty and frailty.
Calm colors, dark and light,
fleeting and brief.
A reluctant moon, nestled in its place,
slowly passes, and still holds firmly,
for attention against the fading dark sky.
Let the tender dark night tumble, and turn over, once more.
Let sleep remain folded, covered and untouched.
Pulled, is the gentle sad passing night
unwilling to surrender
to the approaching new light.
The cool darkness remains and drifts,
exhausted and drained.
It keeps the soft warm glow of day
Pressed and rubbed are the stars,
slowly moved back out of sight.
Dawn is draped and tenderly drawn
to replace the dark layers of the night sky.
Wanted are the sleepy soft dark thoughts
that lay beside me, like the stars, they are willing
to remain forever, captured in the dark night sky.
Let twilight branch out, and fall back upon me, once more.
Let its cool lasting trace, its sweet dark embrace
Its residue linger, with me once again.
