Evening Bliss

Updated on March 3, 2011

Evening Bliss

The air is sweet.

The night is chill.

Gentle breezes stir,

Wander where they will.

Flames leap and dance

In the bonfire's glow,

Shadows sway faintly

In sensuous show.

Bright twinkling stars

Adorn velvet sky.

Evening awe whispers,

Muse secretly sigh.

The moon, plump and full,

Peeks through the trees.

Her pale satin shimmer

A soft, playful tease.

There's a presence of power

Alive in the air,

Coaxing my spirit

From worry and care.

To know for a moment

Such glory and bliss

Is to capture and cherish

God's own tender kiss.

      if nature is a gift to you - then you are also a gift to nature - and to us - your faithful readers ......

      my favorite time of day or night here by my lake of Erie is what I call the twilight or the magic hour where the light is on the wane (I also call it the mellow hour) and that time is between 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm in our Canadian summer!
