Evening Sky

A trilogy of poems in praise of the peace and beauty each evening brings.

Summer Sky

There is a gentle softness over the bay,
Breathless and golden
Lingering sunset,
Silence ends the day.
Shades of yellow gently sway.
The evening ocean breeze,
Salty, soothing tease,
Promising the cool wonder of night.

Twilight Sky

Lost in the perfection of the sky,
My thoughts as crisp as the light upon the sea,
Sparkling mystery...
There is no other place I would rather be,
Beauty, music, rapture, art-
Blue is beyond a color, it has depth and heart.
Standing on the shore
As evening unfolds its history,
My soul stirs, I feel its weight.

A Fisherman's Sky

At day's end
Slippers old and worn
Wait by the kitchen's back door.
The table is set for two
And beyond the window view,
The cove in evening's soft blue.
Here the sky now is at rest,
Moored and secured, safely harbored.

Ditto all the above!~

These lines could stand on their own as a short poem:

Lost in the perfection of the sky,
My thoughts as crisp as the light upon the sea,
Sparkling mystery...


Love it!

Love your sky poems and photos. The line "Blue is beyond a color, it has debt and heart" makes me want to say yes, just as Delicia's poems are beyond a (single) color; they are veritable rainbows of depth and heart.

One can be anywhere but still feel right there - such is the beauty and evocative feel of your poetry, Delicia. And what else can I say about the pictures that should be better than reality! siva
