The lilies of the night

The lilies of the night
are made of many colours
all of them black
as on a Raven wing
dark iridescences
pooled in shadows as twilight fails

The lilies twist around our dreams
soaking deep and darkly
nurturing fear, sowing despair
their leaves absorb moonlight
petals gleaming drably
as midnight rises
