Dusky Senses


Oh you
mellow moments
Wash me with your
cool, calm ambiance

Fill my vision
with rich amber light
My ears
with birdsong
My body
with release

Fiery skies sink into
mauvey grey horizons
Crickets begin their
one note chorus
Relieving breezes introduce
the evening star and its
sidekick,
Blurry Moon

Snippets of aromas
Wafting roasts
Spicy curries
The neighbours prepare
their feasts
Do they smell mine?

Soon it's time
to light the lamps
plate the meals
Share our day
Clink a glass
Give thanks

But for a moment more
I bask
This dusky peace
A gift,
An honour, to receive
Again today.
