Night Secret

night-blooming cacti
wake in the dark
when people slumber
in muffled shadows

full buds inflate
bracts burst
perfume gusts
blooms unfold

fifty moon globes
fruit born of shade
hover on leaves
stretch in the moonlight

white shivas
stroke the darkness
of summer

at first light
moonflower bounty
night magic
silently slips away
