Between dark and light,
As the owl sings its melancholy melody,
Then my eyes discern your shape,
Gray against gray.
Our gazes lock.
I wonder at your lush tail, your vulpine visage.
You size me up, ready for a challenge.
Something wild and untamed moves within me.
I resume my path forward.
As I move, you fade into the landscape
Although I continue
To seek you
Long after you are gone.
