Night has Fallen

by Thomas K. Hunt

Night has fallen
Risen over dusk
Cooling with comfort
It blankets all of us

Melodies sung from feathers
Fade to silence in the night
Wing covered beaks
Reposed in shadows far from sight

Moonlit rays, filtered light
Seeping cracks, beams of white
Velvet breeze, smooth-n-plush
Softly rustles through the brush

Images of willing spirits
Donned by Luna’s grace
Pass the moon to say goodbye
Then drift to another place

Blazing trails across the sky
Witnessing final flight
A shooting star burns then dies
Freeing wishes to the night

Dreams fill the slowing pace
Cascading light at days end
The sun fades til morrow
Night has fallen again

This is so good in a really gentle and sweet way... Good stuff. ~Nita

You make the night so vivid and alive. The night, to me, is the most magical time of life. Luna's grace is magestic to hold in one's eye throughout her fall into the daylight. Great read that really paints a beautiful picture.

Mr. Hunt...this is beautiful! Love the tempo, the rhyme, the wonderful use of the english language you employ here!!

After reading it once, I went back and whispered it aloud. Marvelous! Quieting! And gentle.

Wow! I love this. It is a twilight song rising with flying embers... peaceful... as gentle as the breeze. Thanks.

Quite lovely Thomas. And my favourite time of day also. Thanks for posting this.
