Evening to Dawn.

I look up at the evening sky,

The reds and oranges adorn the clouds,

Natures artistic brush sweeps through

Showing its wondrous glory.

Slowly the colours fade

And a grey world is upon me,

But as I look the moon rises,

This white ball of heavenly light

Shining down on me,

Showing that the light is with me,

Showing me the way.

I look beyond the moon

And see the stars emerging,

Each one a memory of hope.


The evening passes

Into the darkness of night,

The moon and stars so bright

Giving me the faith

That all is well within My World,

And that the New Day is coming.


That New day arrives,

The reds and oranges adorn the clouds

As natures artwork is with me,

And daylight fills my life once more.

    A fine write Gold. Yes, and in Jewish thought anyway, the days begin at sunset.

            And isn't it wonderful that we all share the Moon no matter where we are...... almost as if we all lived together in the same house.... and that the Moon saw every single one of us including Cleopatra and Caesar and no matter how much disagreement and horror there is in the world, the Moon (and less romantically the Sun) is a peaceful constant! I loved the music too which isn't music I would normally find but oh so peaceful.....

            • Goldfinch60

              Yes it is so wonderful that we can share the moon (and the stars) in our so small world.
              Oscar Peterson is one of the great Jazz Pianists and I have had the honour to see him live at a concert many years ago.

              I thoroughly enjoyed the write and the music selection to complement your poem...
              calming, soothing, and dreamy...

              My love to Joyce and to you!
