Night Rhythms

The wind sang lullabies,

As the sun died a slow death.


The forest hushed & turned eerie,

Soft grunting sounds are heard,


The tiny mouse scurries away.

The trees swung their arms,


Flowers  curl-up to sleep,

The moon woke up & yawned.


The stream murmured as it tiptoed

Gurgling &  jaunting to the waiting pond,


While the ocean waves whispered a song.


My book called me to converse,

I heeded its incessant call.


The book’s words cried their pleas,


As the velvet night walked by slowly,

the stars glinting beckoned by the full moon.
