Quiet Time - Poem by Dale Edmands

December, and I still love you

The sun slowly sinks over beaches
where we once walked

Your imprints in the sand
now transposed to my heart

Tonight I stand alone at the gate
watching the moon rise at dusk

Its silver sliver spraying the
the leaves of the shadowed trees
in gossamer light

And as I acknowledge each new star
that gathers the velvet night
around itself

I whisper a silent wish for you
and for me

A wish not of longing or missing
for surely there is that

But a wish for more quiet times
like this, when there is no need
for words or thoughts,
just a need for peace
