My Nights



My nights
are sacred to me

I love the deep quiet
of most my nights

the change of the critters
as the day time ones get quiet
the night time ones
begin their shift

some nights are shared
with loved ones
over a meal
watching the play of birds
at the feeders

in winter
I love walking home through the trees
dressed in white
snow falling around me
again the deep quiet

clear summer nights
are stunning
for barefoot tai chi on the green green grass
stars sparkling up high
like raindrops frozen in the sky

some nights will find me
curled up at one end of the couch
drawing and painting
music dancing through the cabin
a glass of red wine
I am content

then there are the nights
full of
a heart felt sharing
on the phone
visiting with a distant friend

I love my nights

  11. Tammie: I particularly like the winter stanza: I miss that quiet, quiet you only get with snow, all of us breathing in stillness...
