Where We Bid Today Adieu

 Just before dusk the sun made an appearance turning earth into a glistening shrine!

Now night gathers woodland and heath
From scenes that thrill our gaze by day
As other worlds unfurl beneath
Star-littered awnings far away
And Heaven dips its brush into
Paint jars of onyx, silver-gray
As Earth becomes an avenue
Devoid of color-warped chambray
Then we shed our color too
And melt into the haunting hush
Bidding another day adieu
As it dwindles on twilight’s brush

Photos frame anemic glimpses of the real deal...


  1. Lovely pictures! The flower buds inside the ice shell look like mini globes.

    1. I like that picture too! Nature and its surprises never grow old!


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed by the visit!
