Late clouds sighed deeply under a

the hands of a yellow sun,

as day pressed forward to dusk, clearing the table

for night and its curtains of dark to silently descend.


Breezes dance without concern between

arms of crooked branches.

A silver moon opens on meadows,

shedding release to paths now open.


A balance of warm and cool air hovers

above the dew and sleeping insects.


Night is the tree without fruit, like a home

cleared of voices.


Dawn arrives, chasing out evening shadows.
