Night Time Rush

Night Time Rush

A Poem by Leigh Green

 

 



A teardrop of Moon sits low over valleys of shadow

And above a standing army of dandelion clocks too

And when the purple night breeze rises high

A million floating time seeds fill the twilight air

 



Precariously drifting to some hopeful meadow

Some are carried up to the foothills of Star mountain

And some are swept low to drown in dark waters

While the bulk silently fly in the middle air

 



Those that are not prey to nightbirds on the wing

Manage to touchdown like a parachutist landing

Onto the soft, wet and fertile soil

In the desperate journey of the night time rush

lovely imagery and light airy emotion sprinkled in this flowing breeze... beautiful.. it is even better the second and third read as there are layers if you look deeper... well done!

Thanks you are very kind
and these flowers...a lot like people...drifting to different locations and different stations in life...
many in a desperate rush to get there.

life has that precarious feeling...we don't know where we will land.

It is safer to be in the middle ground, we think!
This is gorgeous. Peaceful, dreamy, and just lovely.
