Twilight Thief

Day's curtain falls slowly,
and fireflies signal
the opening of a new act.
Dressed in garments
of hazy gold,
players softly speak
their lines
in tones of tranquility.
The stage is set
for a brief performance,
then Night,
attired in diamond-studded
blue-black velvet,
slips into God's theater
with silent sophistication
and steals the show.
