Twilight Soliloquy




I love the way the evening lies
Contented ‘neath the folding skies
And all the memories we have made
Slumber now in history’s shade

I love the cerulean sweep
Luring the eye to lofty deep
And how my thought’s soliloquy
Is amplified on twilight’s knee

I love the roll of evergreen
Meeting the soul of heaven’s gleam
How tugs of love and longing clench
That aching void Time cannot quench

I love eve’s lofty out-stretched palm
Urging our bustling haste to calm
And listen to the vespers sigh
In anthems falling from the sky

I love the way the evening lies
Beneath celestial lullabies
As twilight's tucks night’s edges down
Against the landscapes silver gown

  4. Thank-you all...the sky was stunning! It was as if God set out a platter a platter of clouds around us with earth as the centerpiece...I simply could not capture it in one shot!
    Megan, that's the last pic of me at 45;))
