The Night Flower Blooms at Midnight

Watch its petals of pearls as they
Slowly come to life
Each stirs softly unfurling
The fringes waking first
Stretch lavishly never moving
But still it creeps outward 
Each petal settling in its place
The Night Flower blooms at midnight
Turning slowly it faces the Moon
The Moons silvery beams  lighting
On dew encrusted petals gleaming in the night
Its heart reveled at last it settles with a sigh
Sunlights first touches fill the sky
Sun sparks fall on the Night Flower
It withers in the suns light
Its head is drooping low
Its petals singed they cascade 
In sorry circles to the ground
The night flower blooms at midnight
Then it is gone

What lies under the mist and fog 
The stars that shine with the light of the night
The moon hidden beneath the fog and mist
Glows a steady beacon to all
Follow paths brightly lit 
to quiet rivers of moon light  
Flow swiftly over idol rocks
that melt into sands flow
Gently down the rivers flow
Rest on padded moss of jade
Sleep in shadows light
Safe in Moons embrace

When They Fall

When they fell
It rang like a tank
To the fallen 
To the victor
Let the streets be filled with red
of banners flying high
Hear their voices
their fears 
their hopes
Stand before the future 
Take the slug 
For the fallen
For the victor
a wreath for the lost
Bow down but do not yield
Take a stand and 
Fall for what is right
