Evening Breeze Poem by Paul Reed

Evening Breeze

Rating: 4.9

When the evening breeze
Ruffled the leaves in the half-light
I felt the greatness in the air,
Just standing there;
The quietness absorbed all thoughts
And carried me away to another place
A place where everything was all right
With no need for night;
And in that moment I knew
That everything that had happened,
Or was going to be,
Was down to me, just me;
The breeze carried the sorrow away
Into the clouds that slid over the trees,
And left me alone

Our twisty evening breeze usually shows up when we want to bbq but you made the breeze sound gentle in your poem- a thought perhaps that came and went..lovely poem..

The breeze carried the sorrow away Into the clouds that slid over the trees, Dew drops I see someone's tears in you. Such a lovely poem!
