a mystery of the night

you may think she is alone
in the shadows of the night
silent but for her shoes
making rapid fire clicks
incomprehensible morse code
she is caught momentarily
beneath a streetlight
bathed in dulcet rays
where the moon and its
shining heliacal partner
never find her
but here she is
illuminated and found
but for a moment
before she rejoins her
shrouded friends
