A Perfect Night


A walk through the night
Before it gives birth to her own day
Just the night
Just me in the night
And few stars adorning her in her darkness.

My thoughts run far and wide
Shall I live alone in this lonely night?
My heart craves for a company.
And in the night I see light.
A full moon.
With a beautiful shining face in the darkness.

How shall I describe thee? .
One of a kind.
Seen once in a blue moon.
Wonderfully made.
A knight in the night.
Even birds serenade thee.
Exalted is your smile.
That lights up a weary mind.

I'm never alone again in the night.

A night every day wants to be her.
A perfect night.
I imagine

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
