Sun slowly sinks closing yet another day
Warm golden rays caress the earth's orb
Moonlight peeps through drifting clouds
Stars twinkle suspended from heaven's realm
Silvery shadows slide as dark hues hide
A mist rolls in with silent ease
Wraps around and gives a squeeze
A dead calm smothers daylight to night
Moments frozen in feathery white.

Wow! This is quite a creative and vivid description of night. Fog rolls in off the water where I live, so my favorite line is: "A mist rolls in with silent ease." Indeed, it does and it brings peace with it. Beautifully penned, Love, Carolyn

Hi Phyllis. I don't think we've met, but this is a lovely poem--great imagery and detail. I penned one called Night, but much different. Nicely done, my friend. Drop by sometime. Peace, Mel :)
