Nighten up!

Under cover 

Of night,

The leaves 

Shudder

And the

Limbs 

Embrace

Shadows

 

Under cover

Of night,

The trees

Breathe

Air drifts

A flight, 

So rich  

Moist

 

Under cover

Of night,

Clouds curl

Around

Exhalations 

From

Deep

Pores

 

Dogs bark

Trees bark

My bark

Exalts

Reality

That

Shivers

Life

 

Night light

Whispers

Softly 

Crooning

Moon  

Bows

From 

Sun glow

 

Under cover

Of night,

Tiny

Footprints

Pierce the

Soil and

Glass

Sand

 

Birds

Huddle

Asleep

And

Dream

Their

Fantastic

Dreams

 

Under cover

Of night,

I stare at

My person 

I was

Tomorrow 

Will

Become

 

Under cover

Of night!

Seedlings

Pop,

Twigs snap,

Reminders

Of feet

Still

 

Under cover 

Of night,

I am

A lonely 

Queen

Who

Mists

A dream.

 

Remembering

Who

What

Where

When

That

Was

 

The very

Night

Of the

Moon,

Shivering

Moist

Colored

Darkness

 

Kissed

By the

Sandman,

Drawn by

The oceans,

Deeply

Solemnly

Asleep
