A quietness settles on the earth
just before the dawn
As the dew settles on the lawn.

Mother Nature washing the faces
of her children
preparing them for the day.

She protects them with her
cloak of darkness
from the creatures of the night.

And as the new day dawns
they come out to reclaim
their place and to reign supreme
unitl once again the dusk does fall.

Allowing the creatures of the night
to awaken and to ply their trades
once more.

Each in their own time
sharing the same space
but never meeting.

Being a night worker for years I always thought about the change of shifts.
Thanks for your encouragement to this new
writer. Never thought I could say what I felt
very well   thanks again
