As darkness descends upon this gentle earth
one half of life prepares to rest upon her breast
another half begin their nightly quest



Me, a creature of neither day nor night,
stares into this awesome darkness
that is the source of light



This womblike darkness of night delight
made light by songs of the creatures of the night
their incessant rancor for food or mate
makes me see light beyond day and night



I cannot see darkness or light
ever since this darkness bright

Love & Grace
