Friends of the Night

Friends of the night,
carnivore delight,
on padded feet walking
through a world without sight.

Fear is an ally,
light is your death;
in darkness,
cloaked secure,

you wait
and meditate on flickering shadows
whose weft and warp
become your feast.

Friends of the night,
there’s beauty in the requiem darkness,
but only as there’s light and life
with the rising sun.

    James, your wonderful poem expresses the harmony between darkness and light and how important both are to life.

    Excellent tone.....I can see the eyes of the creatures that stalk in the night. Love the return to light. SuZ
