Night (Black Velvet Sea)


The moon casts down patterns

Into the night

Paths of shadows

Flowing soft as silk

Reflections of night frost

Slow dancing

In the sighing wind

There is a heaviness

Falling gently

Upon the silence

The night is an ocean

An illusion

Empty

Yet overflowing

With dreams

On this black velvet sea

Each wave crests higher than the last

Fading gently

Into the endless silence

And the darkness is alight

With the vivid blooms

Of yearning
