After the last kiddos were gone I had a mini-getaway on the deck
where dusk was tucking the day with a soft pink-gray shawl...


Let me linger for a little
With my face glued to the sky
Daylight is a silver circle
Soon soft-kissed with lullaby

Take me where the blue air deepens
Until the world disappears
In a sea scattered with sequins
And the throb of yester-years

Darling, let’s forget to hurry
Take a twilit holiday
Where bare fields and trees turn blurry
Then soft, softly fade away
