Midnight by Jazz Triggs (Highly Commended)

The crystal moon glistens, a shining pearl surrounded by darkness.
A dark owl hoots like a calm voice talking.
Stars shimmer, golden rain drops sparkling in the wind.
Palm trees sway in the moon light, as a spider creeps up your bed.
Waves go up and down, a mouse peeking in and out of a hole.
A bad bat screeches, echoing a finger scratched on a black board.

Tick-tock goes the clock, the sun comes up, a new day dawns.
