Tener Duende  \dü-ˈen-(ˌ)dā\ : an energy that strikes humanity, creating a feeling of deep wonderment of one’s surroundings in nature

***

The little girl switches off her fan, and the sound of cicadas rush into her bedroom. The house is quiet inside, the leftover peels of the day’s heat have been swept up and tucked into bed. She is supposed to be asleep, but… stretched cool over the field, the night flexes its velvety paws through the open window. Throwing off the sheets, she inches her toes onto the sill, steps out, and dives deep, embraced by the summer evensong. A firefly and a clap of thunder; she is all and nothing, moving in the fabric between dreams.
