Good Night, Good Morning

The heavy clouds of rain covered the sky
Like a carpet awaiting a feast
Each moment that ticked away
Uncovered a new line of darkness
For fear could not deny its presence
When the clouds swallowed it joyfully

The squirls of birds were the sounds of its innocent cry
Last night, I told it good night

[Hata Bildir]
