Star Rise at Copper Creek

 

                                                                                        Evening,

                                                                                            of a summer night.

                                                                                        Sultry,

                                                                                                    muggy,

                                                                                                    sticky.

                                                                                        River

                                                                                                    roaring.

                                                                                        Campfire burning.

                                                                                        Bats fluttering.

                                                                                        Bugs--

                                                                                                    annoying.

 

                                                                                        Evening fades

                                                                                                    into night.

 

                                                                                        A lattice of steel

                                                                                                    Angles,

                                                                                                    Beams,

                                                                                                    Spans           

                                                                                        Across the inky velvet of night.

 

                                                                                        Stars climbing

                                                                                                    into the sky…

                                                                                                    Burning trails

                                                                                                                of celestial fire.

 

                                                                                        Coal train

                                                                                                    streaks

                                                                                                    across the span,

                                                                                                    across the stars.

 

                                                                                        Night

                                                                                                    has risen

                                                                                                    into the summer sky.
