Heart of Night

imageDive deep down now…
inside the blackness
into the heat of extinguished suns
where the night and beauty are one.

This softness like no other
embraces us with tender filaments
rocks us to sleep with slow soft heavings
that rush quiet wind through the blackness.

Enter this fresh world
see with these round brown eyes
love with the greatest heart that lives
know the faithful adoration of an old dog.
