Night Unfolds

as the sun sets

and the day draws to a close

night stealthily creeps

across the land like a plague

inexorably it slowly advances

without remit or thought

one thing slowly becomes another

light fades to shadow

darkness follows shortly afterwards

many become few

few become one

in the unfolding of night

shadows blur the lines

that merge into silky blackness

enfolding all in its path

night becomes one
