Echoes of a Hush

The woods are awash in moonlight;
the only sound a single pine needle
tumbling from limb to limb
in search of ground.

It leaves a murmuring trail
or is that the moon
whispering sweet nuthins?

My back against an oak,
a carpet of leaves
beneath my feet;
stars shine through a gauzy wrap.

Fog mingles with the sound of sparkle
as if it knows such harmony
is another miracle.

Somewhere
back there
in a world beyond the trees

a light shines from the kitchen window,
the refrigerator hums,
the heart beat of a clock
adds cadence to the night.

Swaddled in the familiar, all is one
with the rhythm of the universe.
A collective sigh echoes
‘Peace’.
