Nightbirds wing
silently on invisible currents
on their neverending quest for a meal -
Far away
sirens announce that not all sleep in peace
and dogs create their own Doppler effect -
A sudden
thumping of loud music shatters the air
and then the night pulses back to silence -
A rat bares
its teeth at the approach of death which comes
with deadly accuracy on cat paws -
Raccoons sway
Their bellies against the ground having had
A buffet of crawfish from Chigger Creek -
The trees sigh
In contentment as the breeze rocks them to
sleep with a lullaby as old as time -
I lay on
my back and wish I could stay forever
underneath the stars in the midnight sky.

(c) 2005, Karla Dorman.

Awesome, my friend! I've done this as a child! There's nothing quite like a summer night in Texas, under the stars at midnight!

You can stay forever in that position, but unfortunately the starry sky will change daily...even one night out there, with no storms to speak of, is a life changing reason to live...Ed
