Night Skies

Midnight at Cedar Lake
By George Freek


Leaves fall in the moonlight.

Clouds drift by in pairs,

but they’re here as briefly

as the dead leaves.

Stars shine with a dim light,

which reflects

off the tops of the pines.

The moon drifts slowly

as if it were dragging

an anchor.

What has been

can never come back.

I have many regrets.

And when I look at

this adamant sky,

I know they’re not over yet.
