Shadows cast long upon weary lands

 Eagerly pouring into even darker spaces,

Creatures scurry to their holes and caverns

Calls to salute the eve and salutations to neighbours welcome rest and the closing of the day,

The sounds escalate and fade as wings flutter and little legs scurry

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 direction, satisfaction and understanding
