Soft as June-Twilight Colors

Twilight on a June night, the woodlands leaves whisper in the breeze. The sun sets over the forest. By the shore dusk's soft colors paint the evening sky...

Shadow Puppets and Leaves

Late afternoon and sunlight through the woodland;
Soft and gentle is the breeze.
A canopy of leaves make marionette shadows
Dance underneath the trees.

Evening in the Treetops

The evening lingers
Warm and gray-
The sky pink with dusk...
The last bit of light
Caresses the treetops, glowing and blue.

June and the Divine

Night lays both hands to rest upon the ocean's shore,
As it whispers its primordial secrets to the sky.
Specks mark the celestial map, stars that glitter...
June, twilight, and summertime.

In Closing

Yours was the last of over thirty moderations I did today, and what a wonderful way to end them: reading your soft, soothing words and gazing upon such beautiful pictures. An unbeatable combination, Delicia. Thank you.

how is it that I missed a drink of poetic liqueur from the glass full to the brim ,sim ,sim ,sim poetry begins and once at the brim, tim ,tim, tim it spills the cup or glass is never empty even after the drink it's full with plenty may not be the leftover of what you just cherished but think what from a glass can never be perished tis always there the love and beauty in the air as now you supposedly at an empty glass stare well tis time for me to walk to the beach and let me to the wilderness of far distant horizon reach to fetch another exotic poem as you always so naturally do poetry is the toast I drink to you...

punctuations be examined at my residence
