Dusk Comes Dancing - Poem by Fay Slimm

Clear and lucid the light
Of soft summer nights.
Gentle late breezes, right
On time float clouds, and bright
Re-arranged fiery red hues
Then produce diffused
Shades, yet waltzing them through
To dusk, they start to lose
Pace in darker blues.
Dancing with colour, nightfall
Creates magic. Do see it all.

    Some superb language at play in this colourful little poem. I love all the 'ooh' sounds - it conjures a feeling of all those wide eyes looking up at a firework display. S :) (Report) Reply

    The twilight hour a time to ponder
    gaze to the west where it lingers longer
    ionized air, a palate'd night
    Sheppard's watch with delight

    the glorious colours of dusk, beautifully portrayed Fay (Report) Reply

    You use a fine pallet of light and color to explore this time of mystery and soft summer evenings. Your rhyming is unconventional and all the more enjoyable for that. A poem that is definitely recognizable as Fay Slimm's - and that's the truth. Bravo. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    Because i look to the east, i see only the dawn!
