Swinging At Midnight

I sit here in silence
where it's so dark that I can barely trace
the shadow of smoke escaping from my lips.
I'm secluded here with the squeaking chains of the swing set,
the distant sound of early morning sprinklers,
and the melody of croaking frogs and cricket songs.

My hair and dress dance in
the gentle breeze of the midnight air.
