The sun sets ebbing its warm rays to someone elsewhere pining to feel its touch

The moon rises spreading a cool calmness across slumbering hearts and restless reflective eyes

Flowers pull in petals of color tightly around their coveted sweet nectar

Shadows begin to rustle with night creatures roaming the darkness only known to us

Infinite stars burn against the ebony sky filled with promises of tomorrow

Eyes move back and forth beneath closed lids and babies nestled securely under wings

The night fully alive with hidden and unseen necessities of living, bids adieu to its fraternal twin as they pass over the horizon

Lingering hue of night mixed with the first yawn of day merging into a  symphony of life and existence

Busy are the leaves collecting precious drops of love left behind as they go their separate ways in the world.

Those awakened by the first breath of light gather briefly among those in search of sleep

All creatures of night and day drink together the gift of life faithfully given by the secret keepers of the universe

~The simplicity of a tiny dewdrop sustaining the balance of nature created by night and day working together is an example of nature & love at its best~
