The Twilight Sky


It was the dark comfort of the twilight sky

that still held her together,

the enfolding of stillness…

until he wrapped her in his arms again,

chasing away

her fears.

As Seagulls Peer into the Waves

Beach Waves

As seagulls peer into the waves, expecting the night to fall,

an older couple refuse to give up their walk

in spite of the chill, the sun setting

her hand in his, still holding

having been through enough hell

to never let go of love

or each other.

Their twilight was always

the most beautiful.

In Between

Maine and More 132

Autumn sun shining in a gentle way

let’s me know that there is a season

of twilight,

the in between of heat and cold, a place of quiet

our souls stretching, taking a moment seeing,

comprehending the waves

relaxing our minds,

understanding the rhythm, and the moon descending,

a time to gather in, and to rest, never ceasing

to be hopeful, comforting

yet very much in between.
