moonlit night


Ink black liquid shadows
pour across the lawn.
In blue air
cats glide in and out of moonbeams,
slip into pools of darkness –
disappear.

Barn owl
ghostly white night angel
swoops –
plummets – soars
and in its claws –
a captured mouse.

Somewhere a baby cries
dogs bark
trains pass.
Overhead
a plane,
lights bright,
comes in to land.

Shadows reclaim
the silence.
Cats and owls
depopulate
the suburbs
of mice,

and the unseen
milky way
spills its light
across the night sky.
