Post 41: Everything Changes at Midnight

Just a hand at some description. Was feeling it.

The clock stumbles towards sunrise.
The air tastes different, moist from the past day of summer rains
There is extra bass in the song that plays.
I've never heard that note before
Must be new.
Orange glows and grey shadows mix
At one parallel, then perpendicular, then intermingled
It makes sense for this hour
Where everything changes
Until the light breaks up the noise.

Don't forget to give to TCP!

Wonderful! I am feeling it too!
These magic threshold hours . . .

You'll be happy to know "Isaac" is playing on my iPod at the moment :)

I am very happy to hear this! (You know, she has a new song coming out at the beginning of August? So exciting!!)

Your piece brought back a memory of a book that one of my teachers read to us in elementary school called, Tom's Midnight Garden. It is about a boy who must go stay with his aunt and uncle. They have an old grandfather clock that strikes thirteen in the middle of the night, and this allows him to transgress the boundary between his world and another in their backyard. All very heady and enthralling for a boy in grade three!
