Evening - Poem by Bob Blackwell

Twilight,
dusk
sun sinks,
light lessens,
day softens,
work ends.

A time to rest,
a time to think,
a time to meditate.

Quiet moments
then give,
time to care,
time for talk,
time to listen,
time to love,

and later
time for sleep.

    Tranquility of the night, a rare gift indeed. To enjoy time for what is important to oneself - family and innerpeace. A beautiful write (Report) Reply

    A beautiful, metaphorical write. One might well count the twilights as well as the frosts.

    Warm regards,

    Yes, quiet peaceful nights is the best time of day to make amends with your God, for regretful occurrences which leave a burden troubling and haunting your soul. You can almost feel his presents. (Report) Reply
