She rises on skies
Gentle like sheets on a summer morning
Thrown aside to lift
To rise up
And move through the day
In silken subtlety
Flowing past moments
That are left behind
As the day slips into
The edge of night.
He greets her on high
A quiet presence patient
To her lingering
As she hangs on not yet ready
To slide down
Back into slumber
She toys with hide and seek
Sitting on the edge
Almost beyond view
Yet still shedding her light
Over and through the forest
And he grows so large
Ready to take his place
The heir of night
He stands proud
And with a wink and backward glance
She bids adieu
And sets him free.

I am a sometimes poet on a quest to master the universe of my mind. My writing runs the gamut of nature, off beat, life and basically the world as I see it through the windows of my eyes. Welcome to my blog. Sit a spell in your big comfy armchair or favorite spot and read for a while if it suits and don't forget to leave a comment to let me know who you are and all that jazz. Looking forward to what each day brings and catch you on the flip side of the stars. Peace and blessings.
