Night into Day

Night into Day


During the summer months I turn night into day

I sleep little but come alive in the darkness of the night

A time of quietness and stillness

When the soul is able to breathe

and the mind is released from daily bondage

I hunger for such a time as my soul is replenished and restored

I am enveloped in another world

when others slumber I am truly awake

Freedom is here albeit briefly

Cares are given their place

as I take priority of stance

in an early summer's dance

◄ Permanently Locked Down

Days of Innocence ►

Really like the quietness and solitude you’ve captured here, Keith, and the tone is great juxtaposition to the more traditional imagery of summer.

There is definitely a peaceful sort of comfort in a summer's night Keith. Lovely stuff

Soul has been on my mind lately too Keith. See my last effort.
I know what you mean about nocturnal inspirations.
