EVENING'S CHILD


to sneak outside, into the gentle beauty of the night when all others are asleep, except for nocturnal hawks like me, i wander in the yard, in the twirling, dappled shadows of rain, stones and buds, thrown across the grass by the light flickering through wind-tossed crowns of trees; a rare sensation as though one is walking under a radiant mantle of water... it's true, i love the taste of the evening... a fragrant pewter, compared to the coppery sting of blistering daytime, that when my eyes inhale the grace offered by peeping clouds, is to be filled with a song of moonlight waltzing with the breeze, oh, sneaking outside in the near dusk hours has been a rite of mine since i was a child... and till now it beholds me this magical pageant that began at age eight when from nowhere , a relay of stars carried me out my window. Richard Lamoureux's Girl Rising by nette onclaud
