Nature’s Nightlife

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.”
—John Muir (Environmentalist, 1838–1914)

Today’s catnip journeys into the realm of the night: a place of darkness where there is light, a place of shadows but not of fright, a place serene in tranquil scenes, a place where you may or may not have been. . .


Nature’s Nightlife

Nature by day renders amazing views
From zesty pastels of spring
To autumn’s golden hues

Butterflies and daisies go hand-in-hand
As endless summer meadows
Stretch forth over the land

Winter time glistens a personal glow
Adding magic to the air
Mosaics in the snow

Ah-h, such beauty by day, what of the night?
Does nature curl up and sleep
Totally out of sight?

Doesn’t nature’s nightlife buzz and flurry
Watching, waiting, wondering
With patience, no hurry?

Nocturnal gardens remain fascinating
Ugly weeds during the day
At night begin blossoming

Gypsum’s voluptuous trumpet flowers
Challenge French perfumes
While hosting dark after hours

Night owls, sleepwalkers and insomniacs
Witness fleeting brilliance
Deep forest greens to delicate lilacs

Dusk ’til dawn, exotic blossoms unfurl
Quaking, twisting and popping
Within nature’s night world!


“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”
—John Muir (Environmentalist, 1838–1914)
