Night Thoughts

Amber rays slant through the whispering pines
Sparking a sudden song in my mind
Lingering over the muted outlines
Of another day, trailing behind

A song of hope caresses the dusk
As the sea becomes a grand mirror
Illuminating the sky above
And softening life’s harsher exterior

I cannot rewrite the melody
Keening the still of the air
But I can touch you in a memory
And the tender words of a prayer

Nights sharpens memories and hones a desire
To return to the past now and then
Thought reaches out in invisible spires
And I wish I could see you again

Amber rays dissolve on a blue canopy
Dark shadows expand into one
Night thoughts; an intricate melody
Trickling like a brook over stone
