Evening - Poem by Bob Blackwell

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.

    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
