Poem: Night-Nature

Charcoal-field breeze

Steal away this city stomach

To your shadow-smudged horizon

A modern strain

Clings to me like heavy dew

As I search the mud for reasons

Shapes I knew before

Now blurring edges, not quite lines

Unclamp this clenching jaw

In your liminal world

I am certain of nothing

Yet have never felt so sure

Reveal your silent wisdom

As I rise up from the earth

Let it turn me into dust

A blackened sky embrace!

Such tantalising dark is dearth

Amongst the grey and rust

Wind and rain, adorn me

Petrichor, resume me

Universe, enthral me

Night nature, don’t leave

For the moment I am free

Is the moment you consume me
