And as the last rays of sunlight paint the horizon with crimson, fucsia and gold, I wait for shadow to spread across the land. Soon darkness washes the sky with inky hues of black and blue. The stars are starting to appear, seeming to push themselves shyly through the quilt of black. I lay back and settle myself in the grass sniffing in the smell of sun-baked earth and weed seeds. A cricket and nightbird voice their tunes and gather in a duet of harmony. I feel the notes float softly away in the air, breathe a sigh of contentment and let my eyes flutter close. I fall asleep listening to the song of cricket and night bird, the moon and stars casting a faint glow on my body where grass was not obsecuring it.
