Fascination With The Night

I
Fascination with the night
darkened skies
moonlit beauty
trees silhouetted against a
starry sky
gentle breeze - soft sounds
time for meditations,
contemplation and
dreams before sleep awakening
revelations of continuity
silhouetted against a
starry sky

II
Darkened skies
moonlit beauty
unseen  and disbelieved
passing with the night
forgotten by day
half of life’s beauty
sent away with man-made
daylight - shunned beyond
our bolted doors
the demons of our fears
swiftly sent away
with the starry skies
and moonlit beauty
