Comes the Darkness(A Haiku-like poem)

Comes the darkness...
Comes the darkness...
Its curtain is spread...
Its curtain is spread...
On deft feet, it so crawls...
On deft feet, it so crawls...
The moon stands, stubbornly refusing to be extinguished, of its precious light...
The moon stands, stubbornly refusing to be extinguished, of its precious light...



Bright pixels of light,

Day from beginning to end.

Warmth and nourishment,

Now comes the dark...to begin.


Shadows cast by moon,

Night time's curtain to enshroud.

Bright stars glimmer through,

Moon's shimmering light...stands proud.


The darkness so comes,

On stealthy limbs, to progress.

Tries to extinguish,

As lake's reflections caress.


Dark does not prevail,

Light always shall find its way.

Charms the worst of beasts,

Inverts the blackness, to day.

I awakened to a full moon this morning. I love it when the moon is visible during daylight. Magical!

Such beauty in your words. Such a different feeling is the light from the dark. Nice to reflect on it.

Great poem! I loved the verse

"

Shadows cast by moon,

Night time's curtain to enshroud.

Bright stars glimmer through,

Moon's shimmering light...stands proud."
