How can you be sombre on this

beautiful day

All of the clouds cover the sun

making the sky a lovely grey

 

The moon is away

All of the stars are at home

and they won’t come out to play

But that’s okay

 

All of the trees are bare, bare in their

bones

All of their leaves have flown, shivering

in the cold

 

All of the grass, faded like old time glass

Reflecting the billowing sky

The wind rustles through them –

Turning the colourless blades to a

waving sea of grey and silver and black

and every shade in between

Don’t think of the shadows

as devilish ghosts

But see them as hiding a world

that nobody knows

The world that daylight exposes

Now, at night

full of possibilities

And imaginings

Can you imagine the world

that darkness shields

 

Never is it lacking

Nor shall it disappoint

Even the fog and the mists and the clouds and the rain

Have something to share,

a beauty restrained

so often shadowed by the light of the day

But only if you refuse to see

 

Think not on darkness

and all of your woes

On the horrors you dream of

When your shining sun goes

Please even in darkness

The beauty’s still there

Not flown as the sun does

when dusk comes

but a new side yearns to flair

 

All the bashful lovelies

take centre stage

Not always in spotlight

Or when you’re awake

 

Still they will dazzle

and deserve their applause

that the birds give them

As the sun breaks the dawn

And the world of night

brings envy to all

the bright places
