“Nightlife” by Jasmine Dalrymple

The love for the night is so great 

hearts melt for it, ’til the dusk of day.    


City lights shine through the darkest miles 

embarking the shimmers of stars  

with beauty so great. 


Vibrant hues of life reflect onto the dark sky  

of every being’s choice of matter  

with the wandering mind, it sees. 


One may think it is the city of life 

and so it is. 


Till the sun emerges and lights go out 

orange, gold, and a blemish of pink 

shine as the day’s dawn.  


Life grows serene. 


The life will reign again  

in the darkest hours. 


When the night returns.
