Night.



Thoughts flutter.
moth wings soft and shimmery,
slow dance. from inside the dark,
into the night light.

They morph, hide.
They escape, only to be found again.

They pause, stay.
they dance and come out to play.

And while they stay,
sleep eludes.
night grows long,
heavy eyes droop,
reason sleeps.

And then,
caught in this sweet maze,
shy dreams smile.
