Night World

The moon-laid path

glistens on night water

inviting a dance.

Owl calls from the wood,

the splash of a seal.

I think to go within,

conditioned by some long-ago cave,

but the night is still and alive

with the deep peace of silence.

Moon awakens the land.

Trees stand tall in the stars.

I touch their rough bark,

giving myself to place.

Hollow as a reed

the music plays on

haunted until morning.
