A Muse in the Moonlight

By Niveditha Rao

10:53 pm
The allure of the night
The moonbeam and the starlight
The inky blue sky
And the Human’s happy sigh.
~~~
11:49 pm
The allure of the night
When the bustle is out of sight
When the jasmines bloom
And the crickets croon.
~~~
12:03 am
The allure of the night
Without a trace of light
In its darkest hour
Shrouding a silent power.
~~~
2:37 am
The allure of the night
Inspiration burning bright
The distant call of sleep
Thoughts tread paths long and deep.
~~~
4:59 am
The allure of the night
Heralding the first rays of light
Giving birth to dawn
The last spell, before it is gone.
