  • At the edge of dark
    the shape of things
    stands stark and clear.
    The sheer flat-topped acacia trees.
    The solemn granite rise of islands from the sea.
    The jagged spike of spruce.
    The city's distant monumental line.
    you and I.
    Without the busy light of day
    we stand revealed,
    majestic in simplicity.
