This Is One Of Those Nights - Poem by Dalton J Brown II

This is one of those nights, one of those nights.
Unspoken poetry lingers in the thick night air.

This is one of those nights, one of those nights.
I search the stars to understand the light in darkness.

This is one of those nights, one of those nights.
I listen to fire and hear symphonies in silence.

This is one of those nights, one of those nights.
I touch the mountain to feel the earth move in stillness.

This is one of those nights, one of those nights.
I breathe fresh waters for scents of moisture in dry air.

This is one of those nights, one of those nights.
I savor the winds to taste the seasoning of calm.

This is one of those nights, I alone get to escape
to a world of my own, a place that I love, a poetic universe that is all me...

This is one of those nights.
