rooftops

I see them silhouetted against the backdrop
of evening's dusk laden sky

pointing to the heavens
stoically

some are faintly visible,
lit by the glow a million stars
on the ground

my rooftop
a launching pad for a dreamer's dreams
and reflections

I am aware that I can't fly

but my fantasies betray me
as my dreams come crashing
back to earth

terra firma
awaits

my arrival

That's a very beautiful line.

Very intriguing. A cityscape or a dreamscape. Is the narrator flying, dreaming of flying, or wishing to fly?

I like the millions of stars on the ground - could mean lights in the buildings, the buildings seen from above, the cars on the road below...

Nice.
