At Night

The night offers a resting place
when all city noises are subdued,
and the single passer-by is nothing
more than a faceless silhouette
on the other side of the street,

where your shadow rises to dance,
back , forth and around,
at every street light you pass,

and night-lights on a high-rise remind
you of stars you wanted to reach for,
in those long gone childhood dreams.

  1. Francina,

    I am only now finding this poem. It is rich with imagery and soul.
    I love it! Now I’m going to check to see what else I have missed!!

    Your talents amaze me.

    As ever,
    Sarah
