Woodlands beckoning in the cool early summer eve
Walked free among the insects and nocturnal light
Paths became evident as mine eyes adjusted enlightened
Awe struck at the majesty of lighted prisms unseen .
Uninhibited of urban sprawl, stars danced freely
Heavenly bodies interacting to splendourous dance
Moon beams granted approval to the forest floor
Observer alone, just I to marvel at lighted wondour.
Wailing in the distance was heard, and dancing stopped
Murmurs continued, expressing silent cautions warry
Concerned that I had been the cause of such interuption
Secreted myself more, for dance to continue my learning.
Again! The wailing was heard, closer now…the forest succombed
Absolute quiet…save for a faint rumble…and clanging..
Wail of the Banshee! Upon the forest approaching without stealth!
Lighted growing closer, attracted I to this wailing wondour…
Wailing spewing exhausted wisps loud aaault upon the forest!
Silenced the dance, quieted the music with intrusive light to blind!
Horror struck in the moment, but for a moment it was there, then gone!
Wailing, belching noise, red eyed smiles faded in the distance……
Stars appeared again, slowly to me, as mine eyes adjusted to the light
Unphased and unchallenged, they seemed to dance more brightly
Forest floor again became alive with the sounds of the inhabitants
Alive heart felt light…blinded not by banshee false light…..gone…..
Wisps of smoke and cinder, and in the distance heard is her wail
Reminders to intimidate that of her return to interupt with power!
The forest floor teems with life in blue hues of harmony together
Knowing the banshee is past, laughing together, moon shines approval
…..midnight special…..take a ride on the “Reading”, if you pass go……
