Dying of the Day

There is beauty in the dying of the day where shadows lengthen in the dusk waters ripple with enchanted hush as twilight chases the sunlight away. The waning light casts flames beneath low, fading clouds, in searing reds with hints of blue above their heads as darkness calls the day to sleep. And as the grand metropolis grows dim across that widespread River a flock of geese swim in a sliver of moonlight, ‘neath branch and limb. Another day passes quietly away like currents that move steadily along replaced by night and crickets in song until day returns in glorious array. Written on 10/17/2019

A beautiful poem Laura, there’s nothing quite as enchanting as the sky at sunset, nature at its best. Belle

Laura, your love of nature comes out so well in your poetry. Your descriptions just glisten: "low, fading clouds, in searing reds", "waters ripple with enchanted hush", "replaced by night and crickets in song"; all so luscious. Beautiful write, my friend. Hugs ~ John

Very pleasurable read Laura, death of the day is an interesting concept, how there is beauty in the dying of the day. Isn't it amazing how even Autumn portends death, of the leaves, but there is such beauty in their demise

Yes, I agree, John. Like dying to self, but living for God...there is beauty in that...
