Chilly Night

The cold bite of the night
Heightened by the perfume of home fires
All is still and calm
All is damp as the day chills into night
A distant freight train rumbles
Its echo soft and pleasant
Tunneling through the darkness
Touching all for a moment
The blackness of night
For once friendly and safe
Becomes the canvas
For a billion stars
Twinkling through the haze
Oh winter’s night
You shine, and shimmer, and sparkle
I thank you for your gift.

Takatāpui gender female. Been writing for a while, couple of open mic readings. My poetry reflects what I'm thinking, not necessarily what I'm feeling. Through it I describe my world.
