A Summer's Night
Azure morphs into shades of gray
as color shifts at end of day,
and shadows scurry light away.
Crimson bleeds from a scarlet sun
flowing free as red rivers run,
daylight’s defeated darkness won.
Mosquitoes take wing in the night
like thirsty vampires shunning light,
a taste for blood fuels their flight.
A lonely cricket's chirping song
calls out for a mate all night long,
serenading her loud and strong.
A playful breeze sets leaves to stir
tickling them softly till they purr,
laughing with the wind as it were.
Cooling gusts chill the evening air
and glowing eyes return your stare,
peeking from shadows everywhere.
Nocturnal demons widely strewn
are merely phantoms of the moon,
or the eerie call of a loon.
