During Starlight

entry picture

One by one,

glowing window's

stepping the hillside's

and pooling the congregation

of their light's in the valley's

having flickered like fireflie's

begin joining the bloom of nighfall.



Godlike effigies,

contrasting with their now tenebrous surrounding's,

bleat their vocal anthologie's of pitifulness


A sentinel Owl  unfold's and ascend's

into the corridors of his predatorial realm's.


Obscured by the fretwork of shadowed branche's

there the bird's of the day have taken refuge.


Vulpinously bushy tailed hunter's are afoot!

surveying their kingdom's of prey.


Tumble's of cloud's 

intermittently open, allowing the Moon

to whitely powder , the dewy sway of grasse's

inciting the caress of peacefulness.


And while the brotherly Collie's

in the moistened glistening cobbled farmyards

are keeping half opened eye's on those

mooing in the byre's, grunting in the sty's. clucking in the hen house's

and the mice catching cat's


tranquility, soft footed, velvet gloved,

hushe's by to greet the slowly billowing bright spectre of dawn.

Folks, you have done us proud! and we cannot thank you all enough but there is nothing to stop us from trying!

so if were to offer a million thanks to all of you as a down payment, would that be okay for starters?
