Shadows cast long upon tiring lands

 Eagerly clattering into darker spaces,

Creatures scurry to holes and caverns

Calls to salute the eve and salutations to neighbours,

Escalate and fade as each return to homes for rest

and capitulations

Noses nuzzle

Wings cover chicks

Body and warmth shared with the beloved

Starlight awakens the night shift

Adorning skies as diamonds against black velvet

Coveted by man

and guiding all who seek understanding
