Colors combine together into darkness
My brush coats the canvas
Dark purples and reds
I attempt to recreate the feeling of darkness
The feeling of clouds losing coverage and dark moonlight creeping in
Windows reflecting car lights driving by
When the sun fades past view
When the stars emerge and layer light with the moon
The gentle cool breeze whisks away mosquitoes and brings in bats - taking away diurnal birds
When the sheets of beds rustle
Feeling the feet that touch to settle the cold
The lights turned off
The dog asleep
Breathing gentle and rhythmic
I don’t believe I can get it right.
