The Sleeping Night

Yellow
Candle
Kites
Floated
Gently
Filling
The
Silent
Night.

A dream
Over
Laced
Bridges
And
Raised
Ridges.

Over
Flickering
City lights
Below.

Fountains
Splashing;
Water
Echoing
In deserted
City streets.

The city
Beats,the
Floating
Fleet
Docked
Nearby
In the
Clanging
Bay.

Floating
Over
Muffled
Music
From
Seedy
Wine
Bars
And
Chiming
Clocks.

The
Zombied
Denizens
Haunted
By the
Candle
Kites
Floating
Overhead;
As ruffled
Black
Birds
Clutched
The
Mossy
Rocks.

Dogs
Curling
And cats
Purring
On sleeping
Laps warmed
By crackling
Flames by
Couches
In curtained
Lounge
Rooms.

My
Soul
Floating
Over the
Bed;like
Some
Dreamlike
Figure in a
Chagall
Painting;
In a
Surrealistic
Dream.

As
Yellow
Candle
Kites
Floated
Gently
Filling
The
Silent
Night.

Over
Laced
Bridges,
And raised
Ridges.

On
This
Silent
Sleeping
Night.
