dusk arising

a summer night



a summer night
found us sat
beneath the stars
staring up in wonder
our insignificance
soothing troubles

  • L. B. Mek

    truly, subtle be the ways of the universe
    our simple everyday, actions
    tried and trusted routine pleasures, gifting
    our wondrous memory mementos
    of momentary, solace
    because of the 'who' - with
    and not - the what, of our actions..
    a brilliantly atmospheric treat of poetic brevity,
    thanks Dusk, a wonderfully romantic
    bank holiday morning, read

      Thank you LBM. There are many things around which bring to mine just what unimportant specs of life we are, the stars I think surpass them all.

      Yes it's lovely to be nobody I think.......... safer too.

        LOL Lorna, that's my one accolade, I'm a nobody poet and ever shall be.... funny what motivates us to write though isn't it.... like something which has to be released.

        I love this poem! Beautifully written and truly though provoking 💛

          Thank you Florence J. I think anyone who has sat beneath the stars and just gazed into the vastness of universe would feel that insignificance.... for me it's a great leveller.

            Yes wonder is normal if we but stop and stare for a while at the glory of starlight that the summer night affords us at times dear D. - a beautifully peaceful feel to the read.

              Peaceful yes indeed but chilly under those stars... we scurry home for a bit of warmth where hopefully the electric bill and council tax bill take on a new hue. Do badgers and foxes or even the humble sheep feel so affected... on second thoughts ive never seen a badger in the council tax queue so maybe not.
