Midnight Hour

warm and enfolding be this summer midnight hour
fireflies a glow in the dark depths before me
the sky above of indigo, violet and gray
towering trees silhouetted in hues of black
silence gives voice to a pervading spirit
resounding be this embracing calm
a crescendo of quietude and grace
within the silent music of the night
this heart be known
this heart be known.
