Night's Foster Child

Being night’s foster child
on the other side of midnight
I am flattered by the shadows
of my life surrounding me.

On night’s carousel of dreams
on the other side of midnight
all the horses stand in black,
and the stallion I may choose
to traverse night’s velvet land
on the other side of midnight
moves me gently like a cradle 
through my scenery of shade.  

From night’s carnival of loners
on the other side of midnight,
when I win the lottery, I can take
a spark of starlight facing dawn.

    This is so rich with imagery ... evocative of life's dream and its fragile-ness (I really do wish to write fragility) ... I want the noun you make me feel ... your words are powerful and real ... as is your genius. Good write, my friend
