Etched in Sunset – Minute Poem – January 28, 2016

light experiment_small

in the shadows of the gloaming
each line etched
against the lake
in black and white

in the twilight we leave the shore
and lake birds call,
shrilly voicing
their last goodbyes

in this moment of day’s passing
a star rises
to guide our steps
ever homeward

G.s.k. ‘16

    • Thanks Paloma … I’ve written minute poems before, but man, this one just didn’t want to be written … took me forever to write it and I’m not sure if I even like it! Or maybe I’m just being hypercritical .. I do like the photo but I’m not sure of the poem.
