Night village

The dark-descended village
huddles between sea and hills
fading into velvet-covered black

Starlight, boat light, town light
(landlocked stars) reflections mingling in the night
dance, meeting at shoreline

Humanity’s sounds are swallowed
by sea-roar, wind-howl, frog-song;
the night strips our uneven power

  1. Gorgeous sounds and rhythm. I especially love “The dark-descended village” and “the night strips our uneven power.” Listening for the sound and feeling the wildness in a “quiet” night scene.
