Rendezvous by Charlotte Ehney

Rendezvous

When the full moon beckons
I escape my safe abode
choosing instead to travel
a path of moonbeams
to the spirit world.

The ancient ones guard the faint trail
invisible to most human eyes
but I am blessed by Mother Moon
with second sight
granting me entry
to that mystic realm
where I dance with the fae
under the silvery light
until the rooster’s crow
signals Aurora to arise
bringing forth the day.

The fairies retire
taking shelter to safely slumber
through the sun’s harsh rays
as I retrace my steps
to the world of mortals
until the moon beckons me once more.
