Shades of Midnight in Summer

The moon

illuminates the edges of clouds

in the darkness

Silence fills the night

except for faint cricket sounds

continuously in rhythm

Stars twinkle

deep in the dark blue sky

Silhouettes of trees outline the horizon

A warm breeze flows

gently in the air

Heat rising from the ground

Smell of freshly cut grass

The aroma of eucalyptus leaves

Scent the air

The last bird calls

were three hours ago

Shades of Midnight in Summer
