THE GOOD NIGHT

 

A cold room

With the white light

Of the night

Shining through

A blackened windowpane

Twirling

Rising and falling

In the center of the room

Angel dances

Through shadows

And light

I only watch

As our eyes meet

With every full circle

Clouds

And stars

Hover

In the night sky

Shift

Fade

Then reform

In my mind

As they are

One and the same

A blanket of stillness

Is pulled up over all

A quiet humming is in my ears

White and orange embers are in my heart

Two fingers lightly touch my lips

Before I fall gently

Into the good night
