Quietly she slips into view
Over the hump of her sister’s hips at rest
Initially just her aura
Lighting the sky in hues of gold
Jubilantly peeking her goldilocks
Out of cover of the night
Infusing all with a sense of wonder
Gilding the clouds
With a Midas-like sheen
Her cheerful face
Brightens the night to full-fledged day
In just a moment
The gold hues easing into bright blue
Blue tinged with golds and orange.
Purples easing to blues fading into black.
The stars twinkling in the deepening heavens
Lady Moon, white-faced and open,
Shining brightly o’er the darkened scape.
Nocturne creatures appear to feed, to commune.
Freedom of movement hidden within shadows.
Daylight fades, opening the world to night.
