Evening Into Night

 

Darkness has fallen, the night sky is here

Lighted only by the horizoned sun

It’s glow only on things near

 

The breeze while silent during the light

Just as steadily blows now

Louder passing through the trees in the night

 

A distant frog calls for a mate

Echoing through the tree tops

Hoping it won’t have long to wait

 

Even the car tires sounds as they pass

Diminishes quickly with distance now

Lost in the swishing, back and forth fields of grass

 

I listen while on the edge of the dark

But my eyes and head are drowsy and tired

I must arise and leave the park

 

But it’s too relaxing and I waver

Soon asleep as quietly I lay

The evening now the night that I savor

 

I awaken with the chill of the mist

Dampening my shirt and face

Like a spitting serpent who has hissed

 

But crawl I must from my bed of grass

To go through life once more

With no sleep to conceal the past

 

I think instead of the peaceful calm

Of the settling night closing down

As it rested me, deep in its palm
