Night’s Secrets

Does the full moon scream for mercy in the reflecting sunlight?
Do the stars sing in harmony as the silky twilight sets in?
The pond seems quiet,
And the earth has fallen asleep
In the arms of it’s beloved night.
Does the raven sky shed tears of mercy on loners?
Do the oriental patterns of love in the sky shed the blood of fate?
The dark blanket overcomes the blue sky, as if they obey each other.
The ravens scream a song of lost souls
And the spirits of loved ones form in wispy wind.
Do the prowlers of the night sigh for true love’s stabs?
Do the stings of ruby blood write the passage of night’s dark love?
Bird’s feathers dance across the dampened earth with content.
The leaves rustle with their own musical dance.
The stars seem to smile bright in the deep purple and black.
Do the carved letters fly upward in search of harmony?
Will night’s secrets be withheld or outspoken?
