Light at night
By Just Jim
Glenwood Springs

Carbondale is lit 
Just take a stroll
But, first let the moon sit
Then imbibe Main Street’s soul

Chandeliers gleam 
Bringing saloons to life
As conversations stream
A moment to set aside strife

For many, the long drive
From Aspen to home
Lights scream by as sight deprived 
But, KDNK soothes with a poem

At the end of the Fork
Clouds hang low, but still darkness evades
An amusement park sparks the horizon
As city lights hover below those caves

Outside of society
Patti Smith rings
Comfort from anxiety 
The natural world brings

Legends narrated by starlight
As the moon fills the forest floor
These are the most precious to night
Lumination knocking at the door
