early autumn evening walk

dark of night
shadows skulking with luminescent feline eyes
stars peaking through wispy, grey black clouds
orion's constant presence felt
chill autumn breezes gently caress my hair,
floating leaves down from trees up high
warm wood smoke perfumes the air with it's heady scent,
wrapping me in a quilt of familiar comfort
oh, how i've longed for this.
