The Strange Winter Night

This winter was not the usual dead and cold
Yet to me some mysteries did it unfold
A strange mid-feb night, the sky was light blue
Total contrast to the usual dark hue
Though it was all bright yet the sky was not clear
As if the stars had hidden out of fear
Even though the moon was covered by clouds
But as strange as the night could be, it still lit up the whole sky
The moon gave strength to the stars as well
Who, one by one, started peeping through the clouds
A novel lesson of life presented the strange winter night
Even the clouds look beautiful when the moon shines bright!
