Nightshade

       
         
the night burned bright          
and the day cared not for her          
she wrapped herself with the stars          
         
cloaking herself from his glaring disapproval          
once they were deeply in love          
now his warm countenance shined no more          
         
she took supernova as a lover          
so colorful and passionate          
he painted her beautiful          
         
when she was but a dark quiet voice          
in love you can see their children          
chasing each other across the sky          
         
dazzling shooting stars          
playing in her graceful nightshade          
she is at peace watching them           
         
now deeply adored and cherished          
the night never cast her eyes on the day again          
she sends her guardian the moon          
         
to shine during the day as she slumbers          
watching over her mortal children on Earth          
when she awakens she calls to them          
         
"come lovely ones be at one with me          
frolic and be free from day's oppression          
your mother night embraces you"          
         
"no fault will be seen under my watchful eye          
run naked and without constraint          
the day won't scorch while I watch on"          
         
so here I am star gazing          
feeling so lovely under her cover          
thinking I will write a lover letter          
         
dear mother night          
thank you for this blessed eve          
for relief from a day too hard          
         
I love you
