The stillness of night; is my most sacred time.

No disturbance to steal my thoughts away.

Quiet and surreal in shadowy light define;

the magic of the moon’s tribute to the day.

~~~~~

Some fear darkness as if it comes to harass;

to me it is dear friend; wise in its approach.

Unlike the day, that is loudly bold and crass;

night whispers soft and offers no reproach.

~~~~~

I find it a source of comfort from day’s strife;

to reflect and contemplate on all discontent.

That which the day light brings in all its rife;

night does wipe away; in reverence circumvent.

~~~~~

When moonlight slips into dawn; and wanes;

I linger not behind its exit into light.

A child of the dark I am; and sing its refrains;

as wisdom’s lessons are whispered soft at night.
