Night moods

Through open windows
Night comes with midnight cool caresses
Sliding over my skin
the sultry breeze cools,
As I sleep on warm cotton
I feel the night moving
Over me.
Like the sweetest kiss
Deep in silence I sleep
Drifting through dreams sublime
As the moon slides sideways
Watching me like a loving parent
Through half-drawn shades
Swaying in the night,
I am comforted
As arms of a soft beam of light
Wash over me from head to toe.
I awaken in the predawn hours
Stretching out cat-like
I reach so high in the cool air
To greet the stars,
Sweet visions finding me
As I stand and ponder
The bliss of a sleep
So deep.
