I love walking at dusk
There is something magical
about that time of the day...
Yellow light streaming onto footpaths
from living room lamps being switched on...
The colour of the sky as it drops into night
the glow of the moon + stars
as they start to appear through the darkness...
The smell of evening meals being cooked
and the flicker of tv screen images
as people unwind
into the night routine...
The chill of the autumn air -
The sounds of children being fed and bathed -
and the tinkering of tiny paws on concrete
as dogs across the hood
go on their final constitutional
of the day....
