Fleeting Shadows

Shadows washed in blue, trees painted in grey

light shrinks from the forest slips with stealth away  

at the welcomed end of a steel vise cold wintery day

The forest comes alive in the waning dusky light

a gentle movement in music with gloom of coming night

as a Great Horned owl sings, spreads its wings, taking flight.

Nightfall is for hunters with stealth they hunt their prey

a time when creatures scurry, come out from hiding to play

when the melody of eventide crescendos, trees begin to sway
