The velvet cloak of night
Wraps itself around me
Like a light caress.
Raindrops drift downward
From trees in silhouette.
My lonely tears fall
And land on my cheek.
I smell the rain-swept sea
In the summer breeze.
I no longer feel my distress,
Nor do I feel, in this moment, regret
For losses that leave me feeling weak
And cause a trembling in my knees.
I strive to Center my Self within,
By focusing on the pale moonlight
Brightening the shrubs nearby;
And hearing the sound of waves breaking
Against the rock-lined shore.
My sad soul craves peace tonight.
I turn from that which makes me sigh.
I breathe deep and hear the awakening
Of the night’s magic that I can’t ignore.
With each breath I take and release,
I move with the tide in and out.
I feel the moon’s effect on my Spiritual Self,
And find a pathway that leads to peace.
With the night sounds, I find a greater wealth.
