On Comes The Night

Sunset like a cotton candy world full of color
fills the sky with mock representations 
of the earth below.
Hills, valleys, rivers and fields in panoramic view
float above my head.
Clouds disapate and colors deepen  
as the temptress of sunset takes flight
her time now spent.
Twilight whispers and seduces 
as she brings on the blanket of night
with bed warm promises
till sunrise arrives with it's golden light.


Kash wrote a Thau-bauk called Twilight Her Name and through this poem he was my muse for this poem.

This is now part of a series of poems including   Sunset Reverie, An Evening by The Lake,
Days End, A Night of Dreams and Tiny White Canoe

    OH you made me cry. I am so pleased that you like it. It is what you brought to mind with your Hiku and I so hoped that you would like it but I hadn't dared to think that you would like it this much. Thank you friend for being my muse this day. Huggs TLee
