Cycles…#OctPoWriMo 2018

The sun did rise,

But then slipped away.

My eyes wandered toward the sky.

As dusk closed in – an ominous sign.

And the day – it said goodbye.

Slowly, the stars come out to dance

While moonbeams decreed new light.

To slumber are those who played in the sun

But not, the creatures of the night.

Awakened, to hunt, and kill and eat,

And chase as their brethren of day.

Brisk is the air as their lungs are filled

Lowly, the lowly – the prey.

The cycle continues

And then comes the morn.

As nocturnal eyes close in sleep.

It’s dawn on the rise

Eternal the sun

A new day is claimed for the reap.
