Stillness of Night

My moon seeks the stillness of night

where ethereal dreams do take flight

horse drawn buggies hidden from view

illuminated by moonlight

bright twinkling stars arrive on cue

disillusioned but with no fright

my moon seeks the stillness of night

tendrils of smoke curl, what a sight

talons of love dug in, held tight

pinpricks of blood fall like fresh dew

captures the soul without a fight

the concept of love is now imbued

this is the sonata man’s night

where ethereal dreams do take flight

angelic voices sing with might

at the stillness, breath of two

these ethereal dreams do take flight

my moon seeks the stillness of night
