stillness

in the quietness
the evening dewdrops fall
soothing languid leaves
moonbeams pierce the gloaming;
i write a poem for you

  1. quietness muted night
    broken tawny owls twooing
    whispering lovers sigh
    lightening flashed shadows blinked
    silence returned post thunder

    midnight walks alone
    moon light shadows lead the way
    backlit shade conceals
    torchlight reveals her beauty
    as I now walk by her side

    precious moments flit
    spontaneous emotions
    flow through cyber space
    silent secrets will be read
    sleep well precious lady

    i read your poem
    moon beams highlighting words
    excitement now stirs
    tis not dew drops falling
    tread carefully there my tears

    silent evening
    scent of moon lit roses
    then hark the singing
    nightingale giving voice
    evening song church bells ringing

    stillness winter lull
    suns warmth arousing wildlife
    their hibernation disturbed
    early dusk so chilling
    disturbing fickle season

    Enjoy, for I swoon over yours ☺
