Moonlight Nap

.
I started
To sleep
Out
Under the moon;
All was comfy,
And I
Dozed off.
After a while,
The skeets said,
“Give it up.”
Enough comfy
Moon-gazing,
Enough
Moonlight nap.
Only prickly
Stings
With the moonlight,
Now.
I have a few
Photos
And many
Red bites.
I walked
Alone
In the moonlight.
T’was not dark
At all,
But the shadows
Were bright
And moving.
The dogs barked
At the shadow
Movement,
As much
As the scents,
But there
Were scents,
As well.
Animals,
And sweet
Flowers
That bloom
Only
In moonlight.
Lots of eyes
Reflected the flash …
There was
Company in the woods.
I was not
Really alone,
Not
At all.
We are never,
Really
Alone.
Ever.
Merely
Separate
From
Each other.
Help apart
By shifting
Deceitful
Illusions,
Chimeras lurking
In shifting
Shadows.
Truth dancing
In moonlight
Wishes.
The skeets
Say
with their
Screaming whines
“Give it up.”
Dreams
Were lost
Long ago.
