Uncover The Sun

night swim

 

the water is warmer

than the soft night air,

stars are dipping big and little

across the velvet sky

 

orange trees 

look like dark green 

corrugated cardboard,

moonlit cutouts

 

all the world 

is night different,

shades and textures

undayed

 

we tread water,

kicking our legs

to keep afloat

under the infinite 

 

stars smile

at our tiny grand plans,

which fade to shadows

in the peaceful water
