While Everyone Sleeps

28 to Create, Day 16 – While Everyone Sleeps

***
While everyone sleeps
dusk crawls up the slope
eating grass and nibbling at the scrubs.

The peak looks bold
and desolate
like a lake at the foot of the mountain
where no one stops
before attacking the height.

Where the most exhausted walkers
will take off dusty heavy shoes
and dip their swollen dirty feet
in the crystal water
disillusioning every hungry soul.
