The Nightwalker

Elegy of the Moon's Secret Keeper

By Panos KalsosPublished 6 months ago 2 min read

She walks in the ink of night, a silhouette woven into the dark tapestry,

Her purpose, a moon-kissed mystery wrapped in the shroud of twilight.

Footsteps soundless, she treads on dreams, her path lit by starlight,

Her form, a fleeting brushstroke against the canvas of the midnight hour.

An emissary of the cosmos, her mission etched in celestial constellations,

Her secrets hidden beneath her cloak, as deep and fathomless as the night.

She cradles the world's whispers, drinks in their sighs and unspoken prayers,

A nocturnal priestess, a guardian of tales the daylight dare not hear.

Why, you ask, does she embark on her lonely pilgrimage under the watchful eye of the moon?

Ah, but who else will carry the world's silent confessions, its soundless pleas?

She is the conduit, the translator of the earth's longing to the heavens,

The echo of humanity's heartbeat whispered into the vast expanse of the divine.

Each twilight, she rises from slumber, dons the cloak of her sacred office,

Her footsteps sketching verses on the cobblestones, her breath stirring the somnolent air.

The night's mantle becomes her cathedral, the moon her silent confidant,

Under its luminous gaze, she gathers the world's dreams, weaves them into the cosmic tapestry.

Who else but she dares dance with shadows, make an ally of the cold wind?

Her path unfurls in labyrinthine secrets, winding as the course of the Milky Way.

She carries her burden, not as a yoke, but as an aria,

Each step a note, each breath a chord in the hymn of the night.

Her purpose is not inscribed in human language, nor can it be deciphered by mortal minds,

Yet it sings in the rustling leaves, whispers in the moon's pallid glow.

Look closely, when darkness blankets the world, and she emerges from her cryptic realm,

She walks, an enigma, a poem breathed by the night, a riddle for the dawn.

So ask not why she walks the night, but instead why the night waits for her,

For her purpose is as ancient and enduring as the pulsing rhythm of the cosmos.

She is the Nightwalker, a mysterious scribe in the grand theatre of existence,

Her purpose cloaked in darkness, yet as luminous as the stars that guide her.
