Lilac Night

lilac night

you are drenched in quiet light 

breathing in the creamy air 

so cool and refreshing 

from the sweltering day. 


The clouds, like plump plums

are rolling over the horizon by 

the dozens, sweetly jumping

to navy darkness. Caressing 

the shadowed houses to 

their beds. 


Lilac night, 

lavender growing in the sky

and swaying, a field of beauty. 

After a day of lonely working 

you are my kind relief.

    Well written and I love the imagery. It's atmospheric and I can imagine those colours and the scale of the scene.

  • Nicholas Browning

    A solid read.
