170x170 day 112 20.8.15

They come out
When the sun hides
And a coolness
Kisses the wind
Sometimes by mistake
But mostly
They meticulously
Calculate the dusk
Before coming out
They sail the darkness
Without seeing a thing
Ah! Magical indeed,
The only tragedy
Is their name is
Attached to things
That go bumping in night
Wearing wardrobes
That will make Halloween
Costume makers jealous.
In reality
They are just harmless,
A little stinky but nonetheless
Absolutely harmless!

She often wondered how could they fly without being hit! So confidently that one will think that they can actually see.

Sometimes their bigger brothers and sisters fly by too, at first she used to think that they are kites or egrets delayed by something then she noticed their wings and realized that they were bats, huge ones!

Then she saw them flying around a distant tree in summer nights, screeching, squabbling, never got a close look but there was no confusion left in her mind.

To think that they once scared her makes her laugh!
