Nighttime Antics (Quatrain) By Marlene Mesot #Sundown, #Nature,

Good evening everyone.
I hope you’re all doing well.
It’s 8:22 PM eastern. Sundown here in Patty’s Worlds.
Here’s a poem by Marlene Mesot to help the daytime to settle and the beauty of nighttime to begin.
Take it away Marlene…

Nighttime Antics


By Marlene Mesot


Nocturnal noises knock around,

As nightfall hovers in.

Upon fleeting feet

Daylight fades to dim.

Nimble footed ninja cats,

Prowl atop the fence.

Flying bats and hooting owls

Mount their defense.

Night crawlers nestle near the bank,

As water ripples still.

Uncertainty shrouds the landscape,

Until morning shatters that will.
