swingin’
through the sunlight,
dancin’
on a tight cool breeze,
hints
of summer sweetness
wisp through the air.

nectar teased
from precocious magnolia
sate
intinerant butterflies
but,

winter’s chill swiftly returns
clawing back the night.

dawn’s honeydewed leaves;
dusk’s cicada screams,
all but a fancy perhaps,
to be mislaid,
like childhood dreams.

time for another cup
of piping hot tea.

bat’s wings sprinkled with starlight
gently brush reality from this soul.
and i slip,
softly
into night’s ample bosom.

And so,

come my lover,
let us frolic and play,
weaving tales of what never can be.

come my muse
and share my embrace,
exploring the deepness without.

come, my fate
let us walk
together,
let us ramble
on until the end.

i gather magic, for i am a magician.
so come,
and lay with me for a spell,

come, and
let me drink from your well.

inflames the sky in audacious hues;

The Baron emerges,
sifted from Twilight’s dusky spell:

Which is our
time to flee

the coming night,
with all its unseen.

But,
unbidden,
unencumbered,
and
unapologetic:

She Rises Radiant.

to
light shadow with dulcet whisper;
seduce Samedi; and
claim Queenship of these crossroads.

dream safely tonight my friend,
for you are protected, and
you are loved.
