“The end of day” #poem #poetry #verse #writing

The end of day 
scatters a lambent light 
through the firmament entire 

It washes the sky 
in a pale white 
that reaches far into the lofty heavens 
While on yonder horizon 
the sun flares its last 
in a blazing fury of umber

And in the east 
a cohort of thin clouds 
in ethereal grey attired 
encroaches upon the scene

A foreshadow of imminent darkness 
which scales the walls of an unseen abyss
beneath the very world
On its ascent unstoppable 
to’ard the edge of this realm
The kingdom of night to impend
~ d.a.simpson ~

  1. Yes it is indeed. There is always light. Light follows darkness and is seen even in the darkness.
    I’m very glad that you liked this one.
    Thank you for your kind words.
    I’m so sorry I’ve been distant lately, but things have been so busy 🙃. I’ve read and liked but regrettably, rarely had time to comment. We all live several lives at once! Which is a blessing of course!
    Very best wishes and keep on writing! ✍❤
