Outside Goose Cottage

Watching darkness grow
around the house - beacon
of light slicing
the gloom.
I light a Camel.
The first in
nine months.

A firefly indicates,
turns left.
A bat swoops
under night-
etched trees.

It is possible to
feel peace - at least
For a moment.
Or is that just
The nicotine?
