The night began as nights do, with darkness
being spread like a patient, anesthetized
across the mild crimson sky of a dusk,
while sadness loomed like his worried folks and kin.
Perhaps the rain that fell soon afterward
meant that the surgery had gone astray!
Nevertheless, people in numbers along
with the diurnals, unaware of the loss,
were returning home after their day’s work,
as the nocturnals began waking up.
In a while the first set was dead asleep
and the latter, occupied too far away.
So, silence, finally had the upper hand –
leaving both myself and the night, overwhelmed!
