How quickly the  earth forgets
                  all that the sun has said today
As daylight bows out gracefully
                                dwindling soon to silence
                                        hush now, .....
                                            let's listen to what the night will say

Listen closely ....stars are whispering
                            It is all about sleeping...
                                     all about flowers folding for repose...
                                          all about bird heads tucked under bird wings:
                                               and dreams that walk silently after eyes close

Carrie, you have written many great ones, but this belong among the triumphs of thought ... it is imaginative, bringing nature to light, with the magic of the heart ... I was away for a while, but I am back to bask in the freshness of your writes.

You have such a way Ms Richards of seeing ordinary things and making them extordinary. I especially like the first two lines.

There is a welcome sense of serenity in "Nightfall," Carrie. Whispering, sleeping, flowers folding for repose -- makes us want to hush and appreciate the stillness of night. Captivating, Carrie! Love, Carolyn
