Glowing eyes lock with mine,
chickens cluck loud well past their bedtime,
will we be next on foxes menu?
Bats swoop and sway to their own music
undetectable to human ears.
Invisible beauty of the moth’s wing will never be discerned
unless it flies to close to the flame.
Insomnia’s rare advantage brings me into the quiet still night
to inhabit the world with
God’s nocturnal creatures.
