From the Pocket of a Dream
When the October Night offers you one of her magical walks, you should know:
It might be enchanting. Or eery.
Her path, neither strange nor well known, might show you a fairy tale
or trick you in a perilous game.
The track through her haunting night, either sinuous or straight, might take you to the green heart of a forest. Or mislead you to the cliffs of dread.
You might seem like hear a magical flute playing beyond the oak trees in the distance. Or you might feel a cold creepy breath just behind your neck.
it is you who are the master of your senses, you are the one reigning over your mind.
If the October Night ever takes you for a walk, fear not her embrace. Give her your hand, follow her steps through dark green glades under the stars. Hear how she pours the golden dust of silence over the rustling leaves under your feet.
Fear not. Take the walk. You might see the colours of a fairy tale hidden under her autumn velvet mantle and taste the potion from her nightly cup of grace.
