Evening 

Evening’s lull

poised in elegance,

sleek and lustrous 

in black.

.

Her diamonds shine

against the satin sky,

a delicate shimmer

in moonlight.

.

Her tranquil beauty

eclipsed by Night,

wrapping his cloak

around her.

.

Shadows are cast.

Embracing they listen

to the gentle lullaby 

of sleep.
