Edge of Night

Purple hues beam softly through edge of night casting shadows between mystical light forests spy slivers of moonbeams below dreaming of rainbows as night owls hoot low. Violet mists rise past low setting sun hovering over the long river run darkness now beckons young bats to take flight stirring and whirring over edge of night. Chorus of crickets crescendo so high coyotes howl under new starlit skies wailing beneath an iridescent moon while whippoorwill croons a sad, forlorn tune. Purple magic’s captivating delights hidden wonders between the edge of night. Written on 1/16/2019
