Nighttime

As the darkness
falls when the
choir of grasshoppers
and crickets sing,
the spiders weave
their beds.
and the wide-
faced owls screech
in the dark.
 
The highways and
roads are
vacant with
few streetlights.
 
When morning comes,
the sparkle of dewdrops
lay on the leaves
and nighttime is
ended right there.
