Nightfall

Sun vanishes 'neath far horizon
Vista blurred by twilight haze
Earth defined by jagged shadows

Night smells waft heavy
Birds rest on leafy boughs
Day creatures go to ground

A brief silence…

Moon peeks thru distant clouds
Beams of silver light night sky
Nocturnal creatures awaken
Anxious to fill hungry bellies

Night sounds pervade
A cricket chirps his call
Ever hopeful for a mate
Mice scurry about, unaware
Of an owl perched above

Day and night dance eternal...

I like the complicity in the words. Instead of the same old same boring words that one may desire to use.
