Vigil Watch

Look into the weary night
Moon birds quiet silent flight
Not all rest but stay awake
await the hour of night’s daybreak
Under morning sun they will sleep
With dreams of night within they keep
Of starlight glows and shadows cast
A vigil watch until night is past
For other creatures crawl and pursue
The taste of blood and their bone to chew.


  1. There is a whole other world of activity going on out there while we sleep.
    Beautiful! Your word pics are vivid! This was fun to read out loud!
    I like to take walks at night and observe what is going on. Especially in the summer when the owls and bats and coyotes (etc.) are out and about. huntin’, playin’, nookie-makin’. And now I am thinking about vampires. Hmm…my peabrain is so weird! 😉 😛
    HEY! How are you all doing!? Hope you’re having a grrreat whee-kend!!! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 😛

    • We are doing well, thank you, John is still getting over the flu with just a little cough, ( the poor guy is the only one of us that can get physically ill). DSS is writing, E has his eyes glued to the political campaigns. We all were in Houston this week due to John’s job. (Boring) and we just got home last night. I’ve been loafing, looking at a little porn, listening to Buddy Guy, drinking and eating too much when I can. Had the best shrimp and crawdads I’ve ever had this week. I could only get the guys out for a little fun for one night this trip. 😐 😀

      Glad you had a good doctor’s report on your bits and pieces. 🙂 I think you’ve whipped this thing. ! 😀

        HUGS!!! 🙂
