Within The Night

Whining, whirling sirens
Flashing brightly in the night
Voices in the distance
Offer opinions and insights
Waxing Moon in the heights
Nearer to giving birth

Flapping wings and squeaks
Invisibly pass through the air
Moths to light fulfilling their delight
Shouts in the distance
A battle for dominance
Sudden cries, then silence

Lights upon the wall
Expanding then disappearing
With each car passing
Whooshing like waves on the shore
Inconsistent rhythm
Seemingly never-ending

A barking dog, then another
Aggression and growls
Defending their territory
A shout, slap and a yipe
Silence in the night
A gray cat passes by, lurking

Crickets delightful screeching
Music of the night
Comes forth in the moments
When creatures pause movement
The sound fills the air
Memory inducing

Candlelight illumination
Incense burning elation
Celebratory adoration
Worshipful expression
Moonlight dedication
Offerings to the Goddess
