‘In the silent darkness’

In the silent darkness of a velvet night
Indistinct shadows
ephemeral entities from another world
Float amid the tranquility
that pervades a remote forest
Where the trees dwell
in a perpetual glory of emerald green

Wreathed in a scented mist
borne on the dreams
Of those who slumber and dream
in a far realm of reverie and visions

As their boughs they raise
in supplication serene
To’ard yon celestial canopy exalted
that arches over the wooded idyll
Beneath infinite heavens
which abound in a flawless sky
of midnight black
That prevails in the exalted solitude
of the deserted scene
Lost in the enigma of an endless cosmos
~ d.a.simpson ~

  1. You captured the entire scene beautifully. Made me feel like I was right there in the middle of that emerald green forest. It also reminded me of one of the first poems I ever wrote. ๐Ÿ’ซ

  2. I always get excited when I discover another poet who I can very much relate to. Iโ€™ll be keeping a lookout for more of your wonderfully written work. ๐Ÿ™‚
