Day 20 Nocturne (day 17 hint)

The busy day leaves me
Silent under arching stars,
Meditating on the comfort
Of the heavens' inky blanket
And the beauty of its lights;
Watching satellites, noiseless,
Sliding by overhead
While redwings, unseen, call,
Flying beneath them in the dark.
I leave this calm oasis
And return to the busyness
Of the evening meal.
