A Secret Meeting

A Secret Meeting

A place between asleep and awake

A secret meeting

Between midnight and dawn

Beneath a moonless sky of shadow velvet

The wheeling shadows

Slowly mark the hours

And the earth turns

Colours of water and memories of moonlight

Breezes tremble

A tree in the wind

Dappled shadows on fallen leaves

Carpets of blossoms

Clustered in the growing dark

Cascades in thunder

Bright prints of raindrops on flagstones

A rain that comes and goes

A ruined wall

The lace of leaves

A single cherry blossom falls

Floats idly free


Feather-light and fragile

A creaking floor

Coloured silk

The reflection of someone

A burning ember falls

The candle fades

And I must leave
