Evening Light

Rating: 3.5
My eyes now follow
Trajectories of shadows.
Deep, dark green hollows
Beneath the elder,
Enhancing the meadowsweet's
White feathers
And the cascades of jasmine
Swimming like stars.
And the pale greens and purples
The bi-coloured marjoram
And the spiked betony.
I am seduced by these contrasts
Which the light now fingers
Shaping its sculptures
With trajectories of shadows.

Metaphorically enriched piece of hope-giving poem. It's shortly salient. Much kudos to the skilled hand.

thank you, Baharak. The garden's a bit bare at the moment. Just waiting for the snowdrops and crocus to start flowering!

Yes, the meadowsweet scents are wonderful when in flower. They grow in profusion round the pond. Sadly I've lost one or two wild flowers this year, such as teasel and corncockle but I shall reseed in the Spring. By the way, I loved your Christmas poem in Dr Fab's book. I picked it out as one of my favourites in the presentation he asked me to do.

Thanks, Tapan. Sadly the meadowsweet has died down now. My garden resembles a small woodland with all the different shades of green.

I agree, Clarence. Sometimes beyond description and ever changing as the light changes. Tom

You have painted a lovely picture of the entwining shadows left by the paling evening light. The flowers of contrast shades with a dark aura about them must be a lovely sight..... in the glimmer of the twilight evening! Lovely description! Top marks!

The meadowsweet has faded now. Mind you the blackberries have ripened so I'm busy making Crumbles! The shades of green from the different trees and bushes compensate and it's sunnier now, so the evening light is sharper.
