Sunlight Kisses

December 22, 2017  •  10 Comments


Sunlight kisses mountains goodnight
Day is done
Clear sky cold
Dressed in blue
Tries on pink under gray
Night likes dark
Goes for same old black

Branches curled 
Clear cold night
Circles sliver moon
Cranes settle
Breezes whip darkened skies
Only eagle dares to fly

Into path’s darkened way
Clawing fingers 
Reach through briars
Tearing clothes
Scratching skin
Screeching voices fall
We loose their clinging holds

Reflections dive deep
Swift water’s still
Winter’s magic ethereal light
Walks on water’s solid ground
Under thin light’s gleaming eye 
Watchful sliver moon
Soft shadows lead us home

Beautiful prose and photos, Tim! My favorite is the 3rd up from the bottom. What a delicate, peaceful twilight scene!

Thanks, Teagan! I'm so happy you enjoyed both the photos and the poem. There is something about the magical light, even in the darkness, around the bosque and Rio Grande that inspires poetic musings.
