Through The Night - Poem by Josh Alfred

The night had fallen,
Down, down, down.

A stirring in the woods
A fog from runner's breath
A faint echo from an owl
Colder, darker, chills

Dangers all concealed
Oh how the silence grows
Deeper into the wood
Colder, darker, chills

A white back light.
A glowing devious smile,
Like evil in the sky.
Colder, darker, chills

Secrets in the trees
Their branches sway slowly
The fallen colors crunch
Colder, darker, chills

Claw marks in the ground
Serpents in the bush
Webs between trees
Colder, darker, chills

Lights in windows
Chimney smoke dances
The night is soft
Colder, darker, chills.

Sleeping, sleeping, dreams
Deeper, deeper, things
Hollow, hollow, breath
Colder, darker, chills.
