Telling the Truth

connecting the dots of my life

Tag: Sunset

evening tide ebbs

evening tide ebbs
gently wipes the beach clean —
an old woman smiles

before the sun goes down

unexpected tears sting my eyes
as I walk through the churchyard
my spirit inhales the bittersweet taste of home
beneath this sanctuary of towering trees
standing watch over silent gravestones

parents hurry past me
toward the grade school open house
across the street
oblivious to the invitation to stop
and rest a while before the sun goes down

yesterday evening, on my way home

caught unawares

caught unawares
poised between heaven and earth
pilgrims journey home

When will the sun set?
Who will return tomorrow?
Will the bridge remain?

steady footsteps
drum softly in fading light
glowing with promise

evensong

wu-look-to-the-stars-bayshore-ny

no two alike
nature’s stately rhythms
offer evensong

stars and clouds emerge
against warm rays of a dying day
wind currents crisscross the heavens
swaying trees and fence genuflect
nature listens alert
dry grassy ground waits,
invites me into
the presence of my Maker

opalescent clouds

kissed by early fall sunset

flood my thirsting eyes
