Into the Night

Into the Night
Down fast she falls
When her eyes dream
so dark in the pall
In winter's care, she lies

When heaven cries
weeping is found
her cheeks glisten wet
in the depths of evenstar
and make a waterfall
into caverns below the surface
carving rivers in the rocks
that lay in the foundations of her soul.

Laid waste by time
softened by spring rains
falling in the dead of night
slivers of pale green
push through to the sky
stretching towards a mystery

Into the night
it falls away towards day
and becomes a glistening of light ... from the horizon.
