Visions at Twilight

Why must show, the twilight so,
the prophecies of ebb and flow
to give a light one cannot see
and highlight insecurity?
For in these visions, what is shown
is based on thoughts already known.
And truly, those celestial scenes
will represent one's hidden dreams.
The weakest features brought upon
and then enforced by setting sun,
are shown and heard by nature grand,
afflicting minds and able hands.
In situations, bright and bleak
in coming days, approaching weeks,
drawn by sky in colored rune
the sun reveals a humbled moon.
Then, left with these prophetic frames
the dreamer ventures off again
to, then, interpret what was seen
where fiery red meets jaded green.

    Mandi, I several of your poems and enjoyed them much. You and I both write in the classic style with set rhyme and rhythm. I telly enjoy working through the effort it takes to find the words it takes to tell the story while coforming to the style. I also think that when you are finished that it is such a pleasure to read. Keep up the good work. Dick Lackman (Report) Reply
