WHEN EVENING FLICKERS


to sneak outside, into the gentle beauty of the night when all others are asleep except for nocturnal hawks like me, i wander in the yard in the dancing, dappled shadows of rain, stones and buds, thrown across the grass by the light flickering through wind-tossed crowns of trees; a rare sensation as though one is walking under a radiant mantle of water... it's true, i love the taste of evening... a fragrant pewter, compared to the coppery sting of the blistering daytime, that when my eyes inhale the grace offered by peeping clouds, is to be filled with a song of moonlight romping with the breeze, oh, sneaking outside in the near dusk hours has been a rite of mine since i was a child... a celtic pageant that started at age eight when a relay of stars carried me out my window.

    OH MAN... Nette... soup doesn't deserve this, oh dear, that sounds wrong, lol, I MEAN that this is too good for tossing into the soup...so much to like .. NO LOVE... about this one. The fragrant pewter/coppery sting is magic. This had better soar to the top or I may jump up and down like a loony tune... lovely beyond words

    Stunning! People call us night owls loonies, but there's just something really majestic about the unpopular time of the day! There's very little outside noise and busy groups of people to distract you from the beauty...

    Yes, the beauty of the night is so alluring, I'm a night child myself...I was born at night and have always loved the evening hours versus the morning or afternoon hours (unless they progress quickly to the night!) But I must say, there are things of the day that are beautiful as well, I never overlook all of those, I just love the moon of the night! You have written a spectacular write my friend, a tremendous poem Nette! I'm glad I had the chance to read this illustrious piece, Great Work!!

    Beautiful, Nette! Absolutely beautiful! :) I loved going out into the night with you and feeling all that you felt through the magic of your words. I'm more of an early morning child, but nighttime is magical as well! Hugs!

    Superb verse that would certainly make the day jealous of her sister night! A hymn to the magic hidden behind the veil of anticipation! A 7!

    Another superb piece, I feel refreshed.
