about

An ode to the moonlit night. This music has been a lifetime thus far in the making. Not necessarily creating the music, but steeped in essence; countless nights letting the pale moonlight baste my skin and marinate the soul in her porcelain light. A touch of sorrow, who's deepest kernel of joy is a melancholic song passed through the ages of kindred spirits entranced and devoted on solitary fields deep into the evening when the the rest of the world sleeps. She pulls the crickets violin song from the grass in spirals, and repetitive steps the katydid song from the trees, while gathering and dispersing the silverized clouds to and fro the round her dress with her seducing glare. She has been there, and I with her...and always we will be together, while the attraction of the night sun shapes the human psyche on an intimate personal level and folklore of the species as a whole. How many pilgrimages have been made; lonely footsteps with a forlorn heart, through grassy tufts to a still and quiet spot, to watch her majesty rise in all her phases.
