This Night Claimed

this night claimed
by the sweet savor of silence
by the serene solitude of self
this night claimed
by the brilliance of stars from afar
by the quest of the coming dawn
this night claimed
by the light of the awakened day anew
by moments, by breaths, by slumber's embracing enfold.

  1. "this night claimed" by stars and me so hopeful that somewhere God has created another earth!

  2. Theanne, This too I believe... for this Earth has yet to fully embrace love, peace and good will... in our hearts let it BE so... much much love...
