it is the quiet nights

after the loud days

that live in the burrows

and ask you

to feel it

all

do you listen

to the stories

and believe

in their endings.

in the suns

that set.

and the moons

that rise.

and the stars

that shine

because

it is so dark

waving

the leaves are back on the trees

and the rustle is rife

in the air

again

sometimes

it is the familiar

that saves

you

you have spent years

flowering

this weakness

for you

-the petals are wilting

it was close.

the days were the good kind of long.

and the hearts were the good kind of soft.

and the possibility of more.

ran. tart. in the air.
