Silver feathers drift downward

Alighting on smoothed river stones

bathing the earth in a ghostly glow.

The light is cold, yet

it sets grassland ablaze with

its nightly fire, sweet desire.

borrowed magic from Sol

revels in the darkness that

steals away from those nocturnal

welcoming weary travelers to

an earned resting place.

i sleep in your embrace

cradled in the endless sky

wishing I could hide you away

for one of the bleaker days.

Trying to reach back in time and claim what was great

but it is lost forever; pounded away by surf of quarks.

You play a game of babes with me

behind wisps of clouds

turned yellow by your love

flame from those above.
