A Day's Farewell

Deep shadows spread soft and gentle hands
   across the shore, along the strand

Gulls soar above , while evening sighs 
   with white wings against a crimson sky

Day clings to the edge of the earth
    as a red sun slips into the surf

    That last line has such a basic beauty to it that it defies criticism or cliche. I wish I had written that line. This is soft and gentle. Much like you are, I suppose. Love, Gerard.

    Carrie, I sense another winner here. It's beautiful. I'm not familiar with this form so I need to read into it before I attempt it, but thanks for such a lovely example ~ Sharon :)
