Night-Time One-Girl Show

Alone by myself in the dark of night
Here I find solace, there is no light

I think, reflect, grow, ignite
When most sleep, eyes closed tight

Active, wild, creative is my soul
Contrasting shadows dim I so well know

Awareness heightened only by the sound
Of the hush of the dark, my thoughts abound

It appeals to me more than you know
Because it’s my night-time
One-Girl Show

    Get to work Girl. You've got some catching up to do. You leave us wanting more from a poet such as you. I so relate as I'm sure so many do. To wake up in the darkness and see a brand new view.

    I can relate to the night-time creativity Theresa. Night is when my soul seems to wake up!

    Thank you Carol Brown! Poets like yourself inspire and encourage me forward. I just read three of your poems, each very different, each wonderful. I can't wait to comment once I learn how to post a comment to a poem. I've asked for assistance on the forum. Thanks again and may your day be wonderful, Theresa

    Well written, I really enjoyed your poem and how it makes night and the darkness (often portrayed as frightening and evil) a positive image inspires positive thoughts.
