THE NIGHT COMES

The night comes soft and quiet.

Dragging its feet.

Lurking in alleys and hallways.

Hiding its long tresses.

Come to me, night.

Come to me, now.

I can’t wait anymore.

Your time on earth is limited.

Enter my domain.

A domain filled with darkness.

Filled with spirits, holding

their pent-up breaths for you.

Yes, come closer.

UNDER THE SEA

Beneath the sea.

So many wonders to see.

Colors and textures to explore.

Is man welcome in this private

domain of sea life?

Once man swims below,

they scurry away, frightened.

Where they had once felt safe

has now become

a place of fear.

Go back up to the surface,

intruders of the ocean,

and allow the creatures of the sea

to roam free once more.
