The Shore at Dusk

The Shore at Dusk

Dusk was smoothing breadths of silk
over the lake, watery amethyst fading to gray.
Denise Levertov from A Reward

Definition #16 Prayer

Then dusk, and someone calls a child's name... as though they named their loss. Carol Ann Duffy

Then dusk, and someone calls a child’s name…
as though they named their loss. Carol Ann Duffy

Although I cannot

pray, the bird sings, the truth flies –

perches in my heart.

St Moritz

blue mood, sky, ocean,

mountain-mist, jazz, indigo

blue-violet dusk

Riddle#21 Darkness

purple world
Still the darkness sings its song:
Slow, gentle, silhouettes
Etch to dusk, coil o’er eyelids
Shadowed feasts; weathered fetes.
