My Perfect Moment

The sky is black, night doesn’t cease

silence is surrounding me with peace.

A few rare minutes without noise or fight

before the new day dispels the night.

**

One second blackness is complete

the next a shade of light’s to greet.

A lonely voice of one timid song

moves with the darkness all along.

**

A redstar’s voice it makes me smile

a swallow, a thrush and a robin add to the pile

of wonderful voices, a choir of delight

and the blackbird’s song is the end of the night.

**

The black of the night, turns in a very dark blue

it gets lighter and brighter without much ado.

It’s only a moment I’ve got to greet this new day

before the noise, yells, cars, the usual way.

**

But these moments are precious, a nature’s rare gift

when my darkness  withdraws into daylight to shift.

A new day, a new light, a new start, a new chance.

This is the  one, perfect moment of romance.
