Poem For This Night

The stagnant night drops
crystalline rain; apparitions
in the deluged black refract
shadows and stifled light.
The static rush of unseen
tides break at our feet.
Spirits gathered like free
birds in observance
of this twilight hour
sing songs,
feathers glistening,
each droplet dodging
between quill and plume
before joining the chorus
of their brothers
on the shore.
