Night my companion


I was so restless
I could not sleep
So I arose

Dressed and took a walk
Still a dark night
All was quiet

Morning yet to come
But light to see by
My friend was there

Moon skipped in and out
Of fluffy clouds
Follows me walk

Owl hooted with laughter
Playing with me
My face freshened

As the wind whispered
Secrets untold
Except to me

Then there was a howl
Wild dog baying
At my approach

How I love the scent
Of the night air
Nature's secret

Night my companion
How I love her
She's my true friend

  1. I feel a longing for the night when I read you lines.. Still I see very little of it in the Swedish summer filled with daylight...

  5. I hope she is a good friend..sometimes we all need a companion through the darkness..i liked the magic in this piece..the sense of adventure and taking in the noises and animals - curiously delicious!

  6. I wish I could spend more time like this, walking in the night. It gives rise to deep thinking, and even epiphany.

  8. Yes, night is always a good friend, I think. One can always depend on her to share whatever gifts she has!

  9. this is so reflective of my walks in the evening when the moon also watches me. i too, am retired and making every moment and evening count as if my last strolling in this mundane experience.

    gracias, mi amigo

  10. It's perhaps a fulfillment to be strolling in peaceful surroundings in the cool of the night.This is not an everyday happening! True enough oldegg! Wonderful lines!

  11. A very-well deserved moment, Robin. To walk through nature with your ever reliable friend guiding your way.

  12. I have often taken those night walks it clears the head as you take in the sounds of darkness. I liked how the moon skipped in and out.

  18. What a nice little journey here. It's almost dream-like... and you could say never happened. Maybe you dreamed the whole thing?

  19. I was guessing who is your friend....moon, the owl, wind, a dog,...a night you called...but feels like all above. Really enjoyed the atmosphere of your poem.

  21. Robin, I have not "seen" you in quite a while. So glad to know your heart is still in the writing. Night is a friend, yes, and I love how she whispers her "secrets untold/except to me," a real gift. Thanks! Amy

  22. Riveting piece, Robin. Enjoyed the glory of the night ...all with a message of unity/discord..., very much part of nature. The laughing owl robbed my heart...
