HUSH

 

Midnight silence

No strident noise my ears assault,

No harsh glare to hurt my eyes,

No chores to tax my weary bones,

No chattering adults, no children’s cries.

Daytime cares cease in midnight’s peace.

 

 

Stillness

A late and lingering breeze, Soft and light.

My breathing calms

As I relax into the arms of the night.

A soul hiatus which welcomes me

Back to where I can just be.

 

 

Hush!

Come join me

In this glorious rhapsody

Of twilight and no-light,

Where life is quiescent

And only the moon’s crescent

Keeps me company.
