- Midnight Observer -

She sits, chin on knee as the wind blows her hair

Black midnight surrounds the city

As she watches from above

Soft sounds of distant traffic below

Complete the calming feeling of night;

She stretches and grabs a pen -

Ready to record her revelations

Watching the twinking lights of the city

From such a great height

Seeing far beyond the darkness

Unearthing the depths in between

Singing unto the night,

Her voice rings clear

The city relents its movements-

Lulled into submission

An antiquated lullaby

Sung to unknowing sleepers

Searches the depths

And finds comfort on the stars
