A Walk in the Night


Darkness has fallen

as I walk on the tenebrous path

rain has begun to fall

nature taking a bath


Temperatures drop

chill in the air

path becomes muddy

my feet are bare


A rocky hill

insurmountable in the night

owls begin to hoot

now a feeling of fright


Sliding on the hill

there is a scrape upon my knee

sound of a close hiss

I begin to flee


Thunder and lightening

light up the night sky

taking an alternate route

afraid I may die


A familiar voice calls

safety around the corner

a cabin with fire and love

a gift having been ordered


Storm has stopped

full moon shines in the night

peace and serenity

lit by star’s light
