Goodnight

  Out of the moon
came a minnow misguided
minutiae distinct as a
creviced crustacean 
 
from the pond
jumped the sunlight
bristling boldly
 
as the frog
watched alone
his tongue reaching
for flies
 
nature, so sweet –
a droplet – she cried
(an unusual kind
of intel design)
 
throughout – from
the window
the night scripted
itself
 
as the pillow deflated
by sweethearts
caught sharing
 
a whistle blows –
disturbance unwanted
shut down by a kiss
singing sonnets
in silence
 
in the backyard
the frog munched
on a worm
 
goodnight
nature nurtures
as he lies awake yawning
 
goodnight – lay me down
see you all
in the morning
