Night Time

When silence falls

In the spirit hour,

Everything gets quiet,

Or so it seems —

Songbirds take refuge in the canopies of trees.

A cat is howling, and there are faint barks in the distance,

And the moans of owls looking for mice and other prey.

Dreams and nightmares float atop,

Bodies lie still or toss and turn — a silent orchestra.

Blood keeps pulsing through my veins, and the day breaks,

This is the rhythm,

The River of Life.

My heart is the drumbeat of existence,

And I forget all else,

Until I remember why I am here,

Always and never, and still
