Softness and Peace

The beauty of night
in stars... darkness
envelopes me
the moon mid-hung
stranded in the sky
impotent to reach up
as high as heaven
I lay here
absorbing this eyeless
naked beauty
seemingly alone
my open hand
reaches out
to caress the soft
moist grass
it is silent with sound
I want to swallow up
all that I can
of this peaceful enjoyment
the smells of nature
roses in heady scent
assault my senses
I am glad to have experienced
this moment firsthand
and I wrap myself
in the darkness
outdistancing the coming day
for tonight
there is but beauty
softness and peace
