When the night falls,
little light fairies appear high up in the sky.
They twinkle when they giggle and spread light dust on us from above.
Some get awaken by that dust - those are the night owls.
They may find themselves suddenly awake with the howl of the moon, and do their little nightly things: write their novels, clean their homes, work their graveyard shifts.
The night owls often look up to the fairies, greet them and the night's arrival.
They live for the nights, those night owls.
Others get struck by the night's wand and the fairy dust deep into their dreams.
Where they travel to faraway lands in the cosmos of their minds.
Where their heads rest on their plush pillows and their bodies retreat to a long deep sleep.
Those are the night sleepers.
They rarely meet the fairies but are always touched by their magic, those night sleepers.
When the night falls tonight - what will you be, dear one?
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
