Terence G. Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

Night Silent Skills Veil Invisibility

insatiable leaking curiosity
come fleet now visit me
let us fly our silk dark flags
for going to guarded places
we are not supposed to be

let us shift move in moonlight net set shadows
unseen in mist let us steal through night silent
let us use developed skills beckon veil invisibility

let us move across open spaces unseen
let shift wind stir cloak upper branches
as we pass beneath this vale of trees

branches spreading creating ephemeral patterns
moving as we are passing in shade shadow moonlight
in moving shade moonlit patterns net invisibility

patterns of light dark lit in shifting moonlight
we may steal through with skill to stealth effect
as we match our moves to patterns in moonlight
as we instinctively match movement to rhythm trees

we may pattern body shape to shadow moving shapes
we steal yard by yard becoming part of it concealed by it
stealth uses lack of obvious cover to glide in plain sight
observers expecting to see no one miss shadows flight

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
