Because the Night

Because the Night
Form: Mason Sonnet
Theme: Religion/Spirituality
Subject: Homesick

I yearn for the long shadows of twilight
While the summer sun rages up on high
For the cool of night waited for through heat
On the horizon dusk comes into sight
As the first pink streaks appear in the sky
At last my heart feels a bit more upbeat
And like a soft breeze I hear my breath sigh
As I venture outside to find my seat
As the skies darken and I feel them come
And I see them dance within my mind’s eye
I welcome them all, dear spirits of night
As my fingers tap a rhythm on drum
For in the darkness we all have come home
That’s why I long for shadows of twilight
