Leaves arrange for night,

the aroma of dark green

stays close to the branches


crickets capture a

cruel cadence


velvet breezes close

the roses and day lilies


reed tops lightly rustle

a sandpaper hymn


fireflies light a path

to the nearest screen door

flashing creative energy


everything is painted

with coolness,

a reverent covering


we are south of the river

where blackbirds settle

in at dusk


day ends

achieving its goal

without remorse
