Midnight City

A Summer Breeze drifts warmly through my window carrying the sounds of the night.
Lonely voices of the sleepless souls rise from the street below
Sounds of joy and pain riding on the wind
 fading like moonlight in the city
Momentary silence,
street lamps hazy in the heat
The trees whispering their prayers into the night 
A siren screams through the darkness
blending with a baby’s cry
Solitary sounds
Cars passing
A man walks alone feeding his sorrow with wine
