Each heartbeat a longing for desire
Each step a call to the wild
The wind stirs up the dust of lust
Dancing in the moonlight
Circling your soul
Heat radiating from the Earth
Warming your thoughts
Power rising in the night
Simplicity and eternity
Woven into the galaxy
Stars twinkling with a mischievous grin
Sweet fragrant blossoms of the midnight hour
The scent of untamed beauty
The opening of a heart
The echo of a promise
The lure of a future
If you only step beyond the imaginary confines of your mind
And out into the wild
To wield your magic into the night
By Yours Truly a.k.a. Maria Montgomery

Night flutters by and leaves a blanket of comforting darkness to hide in. Sounds fade and the lonely feel lonelier, whilst those content find themselves listening to their own heart and the faded sounds of nature. They discover in the muted darkness what was hidden in the blurred technicolor events of the day. Strong winds are sometimes heard, blocking out all other noises. On such nights restless souls find themselves wondering, worrying, or maybe dreaming of possibilities to come. As dust is stirred imagination is awakened.
With dawn possibilities arise. The night feels far away, almost like a dream hidden in the clouds of consciousness. You aren’t really sure if the thoughts that were awakened were your true heart’s desire, or folly. It seems but a vague memory now, maybe with some bits of clarity attached to it. Other times you feel thankful for sunrise as what you faced was not your heart, but your demons. As morning arrive you feel cleansed. Reborn.
Daylight tugs at you. Pulling you to create what night whispered in your ear, or to create something new to avoid returning to that which you heard in the night. You move into action, heralded by the thunder of your heart and the promise of life. One more day. One more chance.
It is funny what night does to you.
Just another little piece of The Jester.
