This December evening is a gift;

The gentle air caresses my face

The scent of soil after rain

Is fragrant in my nostrils,

My body relaxes

And my mind absorbs the quiet dusk

Meal time is over,

Children have ceased their games

And the birds have ended their songs;

Except for the evening call

Of a lone wagtail from the rain tree.

Above and beyond our planet

The velvet flanks of space

Begin to glisten with the light of stars

Supported by a thin crescent of light

From a young moon.
