Beautiful Night
"Apogee" by Miss Sherry
A wedge of moon
persists in a cobalt sky,
as light fractures itself,
splaying its fingers
through the reluctant dark,
soon to be gone

Black lace filaments
on licorice black trees
dangle their dainty digits
in a waning wind

Hushed and shy is dawn
as she adjusts her
flamenco skirts
to brush the morning sky

Not night now,
but not quite full of day,
teetering, give - take
until day at last wins

And in that apogee
that is not one or other,
does time stop
and take a breath, pulling
itself back into
its cycle eager to go on


Author Notes
Life's cycles are sure and twine our days together...
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
