Sample piece from Song of the Midnight Fox

Song Of The Midnight Fox

I will come to you
in a cloak of darkness
on a sultry night
too warm for sleep

watch for the cloud of my breath
on your window,
for the whimper of nails
on the glass.

I will lead you
past the boundary of the garden
on a zig zag path
through moonlit fields.

I will guide you
to a secret place I know of
where a warm stream feeds
a shaded pool

and as you shake the moisture
from your body
I will land you safely back
inside your head.

And when you wake without me,

don't dismiss me as some creature
the darkness made you dream:
I am real as anything
you care to touch.

Step outside my love
inhale the morning;
you will catch
my lingering scent on the air.
