The heat of the day lingers, darting, erratic flying
creatures of the night are drawn to their death
by the artificial light unwilling to the end to rest
in the shadows. As the midnight music begins; crickets break the silence with
their discordant yet familiar and welcome sounds; birds, sensible
for once occupy their nests and rest, their songs silent until
the morn; the human animals tired from their daily routines asleep
in their beds dream of a better tomorrow and more after that, eternal
optimists safe for another day.
