Increasing Dusk



Black velvet soars through the twilit sky
Curls frayed fringe fingers and falls left
Thrusts right fringes, falls flatly, level
Black velvet foils push forward to slow
Berthed noislessly resting on pine boughs
Crystalline water dusts white a black back
Offshoots sway unnoticed, unannounced
Soon the half-lit scape echoes a sung sound
Caw-aw-aw,Caw-aw-aw ...
