FREE WRITING

the kind of silence you can't imagine,
where the window grate is off because even errant moths sleep
so you can strain your eyes for stars (you see some, others are just beyond suburban light pollution)
and think about how it's
funny how neither wind nor trees make noise by themselves

you won't remember standing here in the morning,
torso half-out skinny window catching cool reprieve from your stifling bedroom
challenging the outside to hear your singing on tiptoes

but the sun has not yet risen
and you have never felt more awake.
i'm not really a poetry person but sometimes i get the feels and stuff like this happens

    You captured the feeling of three am summer nights so well! As someone who frequently stays up all night to see the sun come up, I loved getting to read another piece of poetry to the night.

    This is the best feeling! Opening the bedroom window in the middle of the night and it feels like a different planet. This was such a wonderful way to put the feeling!
