The Sun Must Set To Rise

Pale lingering light horizon to define twilight's last vestige of mighty sun's shine Moonlight shadows in star diamond sky in night veiled moonlight go stealth passers-by Whispering woods radiate foreboding dark night this silent black void embraces sheer fright Charcoal trees inky black invite abounds nocturnal eyes prowl for prey with no sounds Deserted paths pine in night's eerie dark distant hill laments the scourged dog's bark Temperature falls softly in mid-winters deep freeze still the soul burns hot in nights chill cold air breeze Amber glow to golden orb expectant sun's rise gently moon and stars now hide in blue skies Patiently waiting for nights darkness to appear to once again play, when humans disappear 10/18/2020 Collaboration with the Silent One Poetry Contest Collaboration Poem Lingering light dwindles among the horizon Twilight fades with a farewell from the sun Shadows disappear as stars sprinkle the sky with the moon illuminating those who walk by Woods appear so much more ominous at night silent blackness causing an overwhelming fright Trees are like charcoal-inky blankets all around as nocturnal animals hunt without making a sound Country paths seem lifeless in eerie dark occasionally disturbed by a guard dogs bark Temperatures fall with the mid winter freeze people feel the chill with the cold air breeze Day light sneaks in as the sun begins to rise the moon and stars hide away in disguise Patiently waiting for the darkness to reappear so they can play again, when humans disappear - Silent One 2015
