Taken by the Night

August 02, 2017  •  10 Comments

A soft stripe of pink kissed the top of the Sandias at eight-fifteen.

 

A cloud floats lighted behind a tree laid bare by droughts of yore.

 

Magenta, yellow, cyan — eight-twenty bedtime colors.

 

Bats, like the Yeti, impossible to get a clear shot.

 

Clouds wrestle with the moon, in a chokehold at eight-fifty.

 

Nebulized at nine oh three.

 

Nine-twenty-five — an Orb Spider's weave glistens under the light of my torch.

 

Thirty seconds later a scurrying Solifugae is stopped, frozen, blinded by the light.

 

A final distraction at nine-thirty as a bullfrog poked his head above a foggy bottom, lighted from above in the murky waters below.

Hi Lavinia! The heat is on. We were getting temps like that in June. It's been cooling of a lot with the monsoons starting.
