shuffling the deck

Golden moonlight  Jan 2014

sleep walks thru the quiet house
shuffling the days moments
into nights dreams

dealing the cards of knaves
and queens, hearts and diamonds,
cups and swords

magicians appear from the shadows
as the hangman watches from the doorway
waiting for his entrance with death

as the lovers play gin rummy
for silver dollars
shining bright as the full moon
