Role Reversal

Trees put on their nightgowns and nod their heads in rest;

Sleepy river slows its pace, in tranquil stillness dressed.

Sky relinquishes its light, and dons a sober air;

Clouds are wrapped in bedclothes, adopting night-time stare.

Shadows stir and start their prowl as traffic lights cast glows;

Twinkling lampposts stretch and yawn and grab their party clothes.

Moon awakes, and with a grin, takes his night-owl perch;

A role-reversal supervised by watchful eye of Church.

      Your encouragement tonight is food to a thirsty soul and timely indeed! I appreciate your words so much… thank you for the goodwill I feel in your responses!

        I’m always glad to encourage (I think it’s a calling, based on my own need for it!)–and I can promise you my goodwill is sincere, Melody. Life is too short to “play the game”–either I’m “real”, or I’m not there. I’m enjoying your work, and a minute ago I emailed one of your post notifications to a friend in Canada, as I think Julie will appreciate your style as much as I do. And this is Way Fun, to meet folks who you just know you have a connection with! Have a super weekend–I’m going to!!
