When It’s Twilight

When Its Twilight short poem

Photo by jenny downing

Yet another sunset, light on darkness does verge
When dreams and reality begin to merge
figures turn into silhouettes, the world seems ethereal
the most fervent dreams suddenly seem so real

From depths of loneliness emerges hope
With life’s ups and downs, one day I too shall cope
I too shall walk down its rugged path, hand in hand
Our joys doubled, we’ll endure ice and sand

Entwined our hearts and divided our sorrows
We’ll make happy our today and secure our tomorrows,
My soul shall rejoice, just being with you
We’ll dance to life’s rhythm flooded with bliss anew

The light fades, darkness descends
The spell is broken, my reverie ends
The silhouettes vanish, the reality is stark
Gone is that magic twilight hour when it’s neither light nor dark

Passionate..even in sorrows shadows …I love it. The word “entwined” is absolutely beautiful. Well written from a person of depth.

When Weaving Stopped

When Weaving Stopped short poem

The grain of wood was nuanced for naked aggression. The groping could not find the plasma. Some non-believers were deemed insane by rust-tainted smiles of shimmering stars. Defiant was the crushed grass after caressing the moon in lonely night. The

When They Write

When They Write long poem

A story they have to tell One that can teach a lesson like a folktale With a lot being observed And knowing that no dish has been served They grab a pencil and paper Cause the pages are still eager

Into the darkness, into the night, Filled with despair, no reason to survive, I lay down with everything to lose, No hope no life and reason to grow,. A winter wind passing by, Touching my skin and shiverinv by., The
