! ! At Days End

Rating: 3.4
As our sun sets,
our moon,
a citrus segment,
halfway to whole,
rises, on a
now retiring world.

Its warm amber glow
softens, calms, it’s
blush of orange, creeps
covers, warms, comforts;
it illuminates our view.

Days noise and bustle
lessens, stars appear,
moon now a silver piece,
brings nightfall, a peace,
a gentle whispered calm.

A stillness wrapped up
in starlight and secured
by moonbeams, has
no threatening shadows,
no noisy rising wants.

An empty mind holds no
sorrows, fears, concerns
or worries. With no thoughts,
it embraces a golden silence,
that soothes and heals our
still anxious, troubled World.

BOB, Your last para concludes this poem very effectively! In fact it is full of Zen Philosophy! Actor Richard Geare, the Buddhist, would also love to read this too! Thanks for sharing! 10 + -Raj

Sigh! This is simply glorious Bob. I loved the 'citrus segment' of the moon. You are a true artist and have painted such wonderful pictures in my mind. I hope that my mind won't be empty but filled with the images of your poem as I embrace a sleep of dreams. Top marks! Karin Anderson
