Shea Garvin's "Solid Night" #Poemaday #NationalPoetryMonth

Solid Night

The solid night here
chilled
silent
ancient enemies
cracking branches in the black
does not concern me
so much as the cold
the slow die
toes pained in morning frost
this is not barefoot country
this is mind your manners country
dry, hungry country
enticing, fierce beauty
a peace you can hear
in a river's noctern
rumors of stones
running through the time mill
mountain chatter treetops
whisper soft
                soft
                      soft



Shea Garvin is a poet and artist.
