Stillness of the Night


The stillness of the night offers serenity as nightingales

sing of the moon’s romance with the stars.

Tranquil waters promise a safe journey across borders, miles

and through nostalgic melancholic memories of the swift past.

Rustling leaves, cooing birds whisper the cacophony of the forest

rhythmic, melodic, yet fearfully lonely.

As rain showers and zephyr breezes, gray clouds hover

the calmness of this stillness remains no longer.

The stillness of tonight steadily cascades, lingers

yet no calmness flows, no quiet stays.
