I Watch As She Dresses for the Dawn........

In the fields the fence posts stand like
sentinels guarding treed horizons
Lightning bugs dance against a backdrop
while the star dance enlivens

I catch a reflection of the moon on the water
on the rock strewn coast
Racing the moon to unknown destinations
I do love the night the most

Looking up to the heavens beyond white edges
of a wind~misted clouds
Lit softly by a lonely moon
the silence is so damned loud

I think that any living thing that yearns inside
does so in a serenely tinted night
As the ringneck loons trumpets softley
way before the dawning light

Even the wind is restless....... believe me
I truly understand
As mother nature dresses for the dawn
I release her tender hand

I'll stay right here my love and
await the disrobing of day
We'll only dance in the night
there is no other way

beautiful poem! I feel like adding few lines:

"We'll only dance in the night

there is no other way

twinkling stars

would play music for our souls

and make us sway!!"

ahorseback, this poem is absolutely beautiful. Lovely. the images and feelings stirred by your words are warm and inviting. I, too, love the night; the night sounds, the deafening 'quiet' and the rustle of the wind, voices from my nearby pond..these are magical moments. Sometimes, I rise from bed and walk the large expanse of open land just to feel the wind and hear the night sounds. Love it and love this poetry which is so inspiring. UP Awesome and beautiful!!

Brilliant ahorseback, there are indeed so many noises to be heard in a supposed silence if we listen intently.

Take care
