Misty moonlit meanderings


It's warmer tonight
almost uncomfortably so    
sticky with misty fog    
slowly snaking it's way closer    
[I hope it carries with it    
secrets from the river]    
   
The night sky is barely visable    
peeking beyond the treetops    
random glimpses    
slip in and out    
whenever the dense  
swaying branches allow    
   
I listen    
attentively - so very close  
past the usually buzzing    
of the night's steady chirping    
straining to hear everything    
just losing myself    
   
seeing a spiderweb glisten via streetlight    
from a corner awning    
has me enchanted and pensive    
hushed, contemplating the now    
this evening and the atmosphere    
   
letting the weight of it    
surround and penetrate    
melding with the creatures around me    
making my own noises    
casting shadows    
   
trying to fully reconcile    
the presence of time's hands    
as it cradles and guides me    
ever so gently    
   
into the middle... of it all.

Last night's thoughts while sitting on the back porch, watching the clock tick down to
midnight— as I said hello to last year of my 40's...

My pic of the treetops.
