Midnight Haven

Awakened earth

by Joanne Troppello

She lies on the cool grass

soaking up the moisture

of the evening.

An earth she has taken

for granted comes alive

this night.

In the trees, chirping

crickets, pesky bugs,

and gentle wind.

A sigh escapes her lips.

She relaxes in her

midnight haven.

Just as heavy eyelids

start to drop, a

shooting star makes

a new path across

the darkness.
