One With The Night

The sky dancing in form,
With the colors,
One without the other.

The moon rises so golden and fresh,
Almost new with the night.

Wild animals come out,
Work one with each other,
Almost in harmony,
Relying on one another.

I watch from my window,
Lying in bed,
Being amused with the night,
Wondering how something so beautiful,
Could be so scary,
Be so lovely.

All in one instant.
