Midnight …

At the witching hour clouds blindfold the moon

stealing the starlight

with stealthy caress.

Night has devoured the day, swallowing the sun-

darkness has the power; dread and fear hold sway.

On the grey horizon vulpine shadows slink

menacing and formless;

hobgoblins lurk beside innocuous trees;

thoughts run wild; cobwebs ensnare; eerie foxes bark;

leathery bats collide …

when a child fears the dark … .

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
