TENEBRAE

another night
like this night,
blue light
of the moon
spreading its story
soft
across the walls
like riverfall,
hum of cars
receding
in the crystal
street.

soul drifts,
opening vaults
in the heart,
unveiling
beauty that haunts
me
as i lie, dreaming,
an acolyte
of the night
held asleep,
a crib
of passing clouds

another night
like this,
floating, dancing,
a singer,
the slow hymn
of midnight.
