The Lark


A poem about him

by Priscilla Du Preez on Unsplash

standing there this summer
as the dusk rises up from behind him
and reaches over our heads
He takes it down from the sky
and folds it under our feet
The night is draped around us,
and we bask in each others’ velvet breath​​
The warmth rising up
from our bodies mingles with the cool
night air he’s captured for me
