As We Lay Resting

stillness overtakes
tendered burning moments light
shadows of grey clouds

colorful dances
air-born as leaves change these days
fluttering downward

blankets of firelight
line paths once clear and leading
to thought-filled doorways

lending forth dark nights
scattered stars sparkle upon
simple silhouettes

bringing new beauty
day becomes nights shadow-light
worlds become quiet

reflective shadows
dance upon icy waters
as we lay resting
