Wee Hours

there’s a certain calm
to be found
in the hours after midnight,
a stillness,
seldom found
in daylight hours,
that darkness
brings when
the curtains of night
are drawn around us

it is here we
wish upon that star
sparkling overhead
as the night enfolds us
in its quiet embrace

  1. Paul,

    This poem wrapped around me very comfortably; rather like my furry blanket!! I understand the sentiments and I too appreciate those precious quieter times..
    A delightful read…
