warm evenings

things are finally calming down, and my life regains some... some what? i'm not sure. it gains something. maybe the increasing warm weather is part of it, but this time of year is always renewing. i begin to remember other warm days, and warm evenings sitting in the yard and listening to the trees.

when i was a child i used to think that that time between the sunset and the night contained some magic. if any magic could happen, it would be during those hours when your vision becomes hazy for lack of sunlight, but hasn't yet adjusted to the darkness. don't laugh at me, because i didn't truly ever believe in fairies, but i did hope that one day my skepticism would be proven wrong, and that one of those evenings i would glimpse them out of the corner of my eye, hovering in the twilight.

now to simply sit outdoors, it's enough.
