The Web Poetry Corner - Lee Emmett - Silver Night

Silver Night

by

Lee Emmett



Tree branches
scratch my window.
Tiny ringtail tiptoes lightly
along the eaves
towards succulent tips
of almond leaves.

Fitful moon peers out
from clouds galloping
towards the horizon.

Under eiderdown,
I imagine black swans
hiding in reeds at the water’s edge.
Soon they’ll lead their little ones
into the depths
to dive among weeds.

I sit up.
Through lacework curtains
Nature’s night light streams,
casting silver reflections.
Gusty wind breaks
the lake’s surface
into ripples of
ebony and ice.
