Walk in the Night

I have shared some space and time with night.
I have walked for hours, fully cowled, rain beating
Upon my hood as it beats on heads and roofs alike.
I have shared some space and time with night.
I have outwalked the very paths on which I walk,
Beyond such lines as city lights: straight on,
I walk into the night.
The very purpose the thing itself, itself and thought,
Itself and thought alone; that's why I walk far from
Such light as light that spoils this onliest night.
To spend some time with the rising dawn
Nose heartened by the petrichor
A thought in thoughts of awe.
I just shared some space and time with night,
We stood there together beneath a starless sky
And took deep breaths,
Unsure of the dynamic between my breathing it
And it breathing me...
Content to simply ponder,
Simply ponder, breathe and be.
