twilight

clouds sail across the sky
at first white, then softly grey,
as evening weaves her first tendrils.

the here and there of the day
slowly slip away,
muscles loosening
with a knowing ache,
thoughts meandering
in the prelude to dreams.

the sun fulfills its promise
with a hushed surprise,
opening night’s portals,
spilling the luminous hues of fantasy,
making invitation.

Eugi’s Causerie does it again with another delightful image and prompt, “twilight.” Many thanks, Eugenia!

  1. Love this, Earthskyair! Especially ‘Opening night’s portals,
    spilling the luminous hues of fantasy’ – such a vivid description of Dreamland! 🙂
