Chronicle poem:1st draft

Sky-Watcher, Night-Listener

The sky is a sprawling circus tent of stars
Ask the night your questions 
and the darkness talks back:
unseen crickets screech,
the rolling crunch of a railroad car resounds, 
dogs bark, 
wind shakes the branches,
a barn owl complains of fireflies fleeing his bite,
the sodden grass breathes,
the rising fog rains rivers of mist
over ponds alive with the riotous music of frogs
