An Evening Walk in the Summer

20170609_205845.jpg

As the concrete lets go of the heat of the day, shade

wins the battle, turning into night

and cool air fills

our lungs, as we walk under the street lights,

holding hands

grateful

for the water fountains.

Eventide

100_0723

As the shadows descend, absorbing the light, eventide begins

with the faithful calling out their prayers, chanting

for protection, from the darkness

unrelenting, and for the light

to be born again.
