Night laid herself down

2012-10-29 00.02.41


Night swallowed up all the shiny blue

It swallowed up the deep grey gloom   

It swallowed up difference and likenesses

It swallowed lit corners and ate



Night swallowed up the tired and depleted

the lonely and forgotten

Night swallowed up all the joys

and gratitudes, the platitudes, and honors

tucking them in for a Sunny return


Night came to give rest to the light

To quiet the busy mind

To give replenishment for the long day

To lay down the dreams

of possibilities

of hope,

of making better.


Ending the worst for a new chance

Dreams of Love and beauty that will find light

in the new day.

Herald a new Alchemy for tomorrow.


And maybe

Night came to have no dreams at all

save for the tender dive

into the want of nothingness

to forget regrets and disappointments

to simply fall deep down the path

of sleep.


Night laid Herself down

Early morning’s quiet holds the chant of birds

The meow of a hungry kitten, the breath of

a sweet dog waking, a soft chilled breeze

of Spring greening from the open window


Spring hurries in before winter’s last call

So fast that I can hear the yellow of daffodils

As they break the soil for a push toward the Sun

An early call to rise and give bloom


There is a softness to this morning time

As the world wakes to carry the day on ward

When darkness feels the tug of light rise 

And Light urges the darkness away for the day


Between the world of night and day

Held in one exact moment before night surrenders

And day becomes a time for busy and noise

A delicious moment savored in two breaths


On this Solstice eve I will celebrate the

Same moment when day gives herself 

To night’’s come hither whisper for quiet

And the still light finds her rise on the other side
