Chasing something in the night


Night fishing.jpg


Night of desirable objects


A slither of light

Silver darts

Shooting fast

The ripple of shadows

Layered in darkness

Small sounds echo across surface tension

Coming back as a reminder of seconds ago


Thoughts of home

And warm covers

Breakfast in the kitchen as the sun creeps up

Your lonely belly growls its rebellion

Crusty eyes and overstrained ears concede

You miss her soft breathing

Against your neck

Wonder why you keep coming out here

Chasing glints in the dark


It’s the lure of desirable objects

That clarity of mind

You and something in the night.






Words and image are my own.
