Serenity

Serenity.

Lingering alone on my porch, 
leaning against the wooden railing.
Still feeling warm to the touch,
after retaining the heat from the day.

On a June evening, 
after the sun had gone down, 
just below the horizon.
The silhouette of the darkening tree-line, 
contrasting with the light still remaining
in the yellow-white sky, 
and streaked with lavender-blue clouds.

Barely warm, 
but with a slightly, cool breeze, 
blowing around my body.
Tickling my bare feet and my bare arms, 
and caressing my face.
Gently flowing it's invisible fingers through my long, golden-brown hair.
 
The essence of the roses, 
now peacefully asleep in the garden,
mingle with the scent 
of damp, green grass and the fresh, clear air.
Filling my lungs to capacity, 
when I close my eyes, and breathe in deeply.
Exhilarating my senses.

I hear no sound, 
except for a few birds singing somewhere off in the distance.
The chirping of one lonely cricket, 
just awakening in the early dusk.
And, the heavenly melody 
played upon the wind-chimes,
by a most talented breeze.

Serenity.

    Hi Kelly, the peace, the tranquility, the serenity caught in this one moment in time that you softly paint upon your canvas for us. Now this is one vision I shall hold always in my mind, for it shall give me serenity when I need it.This indeed is a golden write from your golden pen. Your words touch the heart so gently with their serenity. You describe your vision so well Kelly, a tear comes from the eye and peace descends upon the heart. Have a good day. Later. Your Friend always...MIKE.

    Hi Mike, this poem was inspired by an actual sunset that I experienced last summer. I wrote this poem on that very same evening, while the picture was still fresh in my mind. I am glad that you enjoyed this, my friend. I hope that it gives you some peaceful tranquility whenever you need it. Thank you so much for the beautiful comments. I hope that your day was a good one! :)
