Western Skies

December 9, 2009

The soft wind blows as day converts to cold
The stars begin to glisten and grassy waves flow
There are no city lights, or cars, or horns
As the sunlight fades behind Rockies silence is born
The horizon was once ablaze in rays of sunlight
It will stay unlit ‘till dark gives to bright
A coyote has started a lullaby song
It will not be long before others join along
While standing in a field of unpredictable hills
I cover in bumps, and shakes, and rolling chills
As I lay on my back and admire the shining stars
I come to realize how many there are
Then I walk a bit more and come upon hay
Then hear the stomping of hooves in a corral far away
Life has prevented the chance of my stay
I’ll enjoy it while it lasts
For its been a long day
