Nightfall


Gently, ever so gently,
The day blends into
The twilight.
The fluttering wings
Make their way back
To the niches.
The graying skies
Alive with the shrill calls,
Fall silent.
Slowly, the light fades.
The grey recedes in the
Expanding black folds.
The million rays of moon,
Dance midst the trees.
The gentle winds spread out
Like the hands of angel.
A thousand glittering beauties
Rain down.
And,
The night is born.
Ravishing and resplendent.

  5. .... and the night is born. Ahh yes, Wonderful picture! My favorite thing to do is to be away from the city lights and watch the twinkling lights appear one by one. Realizing our Abba Father made them all and named them all. Hugs. Connie
