Night noises – for dVerse

Each sound

hangs

in the night silence
like a flame
in darkness. The tick
of the clock shimmers
like a stone in a well,
and somewhere
there is an owl,
lonely as the moon,
calling.
The house dreams
gently,
and I hear you
breathing

 

Victoria at dVerse gives us the word “sound” as our quadrille key word tonight.
