Day end

Day end

Over silent silver
           waters
the day descends
           and night ascends
is ushered in
           by the gleaming

twilight
           A crimson sunset
floods the unfaltering
           river as it flows
unbroken
           out to sea

and with the day’s
           last light comes peace
comes rest and a belief
           in the soundness
of life
           and the wholesome-
ness
           of poetry and love

One thought on “Day end

  1. This one gave me tears! It’s, of course, our lives you recount. Hidden in the nightly drama of light and day changing of the guard. Our lives at days end . . . Beautiful :)) Dawn
