Shades of Midnight in Summer


The moon
illuminates the edges of clouds
in the darkness

Silence fills the night
except for faint cricket sounds
continuously in rhythm

Stars twinkle
deep in the dark blue sky
Silhouettes of trees outline the horizon

A warm breeze flows
gently in the air

Heat rising from the ground
Smell of freshly cut grass

The aroma of eucalyptus leaves
Scent the air

The last bird calls
were three hours ago

Shades of Midnight in Summer
