Night

Owls wisely hooting
Grounding and discovering
Wolves magically howling
Full moon lights the field
Each step is an encounter

I wrote this tanka last night listening to the owls hooting at the distance. It was a warm autumn night, I kept the windows open giving permission to the crisp air and the sounds of the night enter my home and clear my thoughts.

The moon will guide you through the night with her brightness, but she will always dwell in the darkness, in order to be seen.
