Into the night sky
inky blackness melds with milky white,
a sprinkling of confetti adding trails like Angel's tears.
Dots of diamonds pull me from earth while feet stand
firmly on the ground.
I can walk though moonlight shadows spilling through leaves,
teasing grass as creatures stir with hush, hush tones kneeling.
If I listen hard enough
I hear the night speak softly.
A slow undulation while restless worlds seek sleep.
From windows harsh electric lumens keep the night at bay
But I steal through trees and meadows and leave my solace play.
A crunch of leaves, an owls great wing whispers,
tantalized by day,
A crescent moon adds feeling
And watches willows sway.
The moment that my foot feels earth, and sorrows melt at bay
I turn my face into the dew
And thank my God
He made me just this way.
