This Day's End

This Day's End

Rain is pelting the window
as I sit here upon my bed
and thoughts so philosophical
ramble about in my head.

The candle that burns at my bedside
is reflecting a warm amber glow.
Its flame is dancing, quite graceful
In a delicate sensuous show.

My heart is warm and cozy
Contentment is crooning within...
my eyes are drifting to drowsy
as the soft tug of sleep does begin.

And I bow my head for a moment
and close my eyes in prayer
as feelings of peace and fulfillment
embrace me with gentlest care.

And I pause to whisper a thank you
for the gift of another day...
and the blessings beyond my counting
that fill my spirit's cache.

      Beautiful. Loved that you included a candle in the poem (and picture). I find candles very soothing - the scent combined with the flicker . . . Thanks for sharing.

      This was like a lullaby poem. Writing poetry usually jacks me up, but reading this made me want to snuggle back down in my covers.

      My friend, it is a new experience for me, as well, which is why, perhaps this came. I kinda like it! LOL! Hugs!

      Not much calms this impatient, city bound soul of mine, but this enticing poem does just that. A very unusual feeling to be at peace with the world. I like it, although a bit off balance.

      Once again you guide through a new life experience my friend...
