‘A soft lilac’

A soft lilac 
characterised the sky 

While a pale light from a serene moon 
hovered at the edge of the scape 
Where a forlorn adieu 
of a departed sunset 
lingered in a haze of lavender 
And there was a gentle breeze 
which ruffled the tranquil waters 
that abided amid infinite benthic realms

While a shimmer 
issued by the dawning nightide
Skimmed the horizon 

As the breeze whispered 
to the frisky the sands 
and frittered them away 
For to scatter upon the moonlit seas 
their myriad grains of quartz 
Which rejoiced in a silverine glow
by the orb of night bestowed

  1. The descriptions in your poems never cease to amaze me. I think you could describe a sunset in a million different ways and each poem would never be remotely the same. Your love of nature shines through your brilliantly written poems and I find myself rereading them because once is never enough. Don’t ever stop writing… 🙂💫

  2. Thank you so very much for your kind words of encouragement. I’m absolutely delighted that you enjoy my words. It seems to me that however many skies and sunsets there are, no two are ever alike. It’s a joy to see them and to depict them in poetry form. Many blessings always 💖🌹

  3. That’s very true and probably the reason why I get so excited every day when the sun starts to set. The first thing I do is grab my phone and start taking pictures. I can never get enough. Lol 😊🌅
