NIGHT by Akinbode Oluwatobi Israel

NIGHT.
.
Dancing moon sweating a bliss,
Watching stars with lips ajar,
The cold breeze teased the trees,
A night… that night.
.
Tales peeped from the elders lips,
Searching for warmth around the fire,
We listened and listed in
The lessons of the night… that night.
.
Bats replacing sleeping heads,
Chirping crickets dissolving silence,
Ghost scaring humans,
At night… that night.
.
At night we sleep and snore,
Evil seeks and lures,
Yet darkness ignores,
She is focused.
.
Like the night,
Be determined,
The darker,
The nearer.
