Chasing the moon and the setting sun

Late evening, sun sinking, toad in the green lane moist from the evening dew.

Over the moorland with golden gorse and up to the rock where the wind was hushed.

Past the witness stone to the top of the hill where dreams are made.

The moon looked down from the clear blue, gathering her cloak of night behind her as the colour deepened in the sky.

Majestic on the rock Pixie watched for kites, but if any where about they flew low.

Small birds busied themselves for the night to come and on the far horizon the sun bleached all colour from the sky, waiting for the cold moon to catch her.

Indeed, Pixie looks quite majestic on that rock, surveying her seaside kingdom like a lioness. Beautiful!
