Nocturne

As the sun sets
Casting shadows fantastical
The moon becomes ruler of
A kingdom magical

Nocturnal life forms
Across the Earth
Awakening senses
Rousing rebirth

Hiding from the sun
Her sultriness too hot
Long awaited reprieve
To give it a shot

To examine a world
Experience delightful
Overcoming fears
Of rumors quite frightful

A short few hours
Over landscapes to creep
Yet when the sun rises
It’s, again, time to sleep

To refresh body and spirit
Planning for tomorrow
When the cycle starts anew
With more time to borrow

To me, every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle.” ~ Walter Chrysler
