Civitate Nocte

A brief respite from the rain as night falls in my city.

The lights send out warm glows, softening that which by day is gritty.

Time slows; a sign beckons towards spots were friendship grows.

Laughter, talk, and the hurried footsteps of a passerby are all things that play across the calm of the evening sky.

Stately buildings stand guard as they have done for years; witness to never ending cycles of joy and tears.

I observe endings. Of the day; of the month; perhaps of things unseen. I drift along the way, content to be exactly here; in this scene; as night falls in my city.
