indigo paints the sky at the darkening of dusk
and clouds swept away in a navy rinse.
twinkling city lights glow even brighter
against the inky night sky.
before the moon and stars arrive –
I think of you.
I am washed in the iridescence of indigo
carrying off my covers and veils
like the dissolving vanish of the clouds.
I know my dreams will be sweeter, city light shimmers,
as I drift off into the moonlight’s promise
of time with you.
