Cloak of Night


Cloak of Night

Within the circle darkness reigns
Inky blackness cloak
Of night anonymous
Retreated from the literal light of day
Anaerobic incubation of thought
All thoughts
Leak livid beyond
The murky edge:
Improbable reds
Urgent improbable reds crackle and steam,
But also cooler greens
Cooler greens, calming blues
Hues of deepest comfort and reprieve
Ingratiate the night
The cloak of night
To even the shyest nun.
