thoughts on a twilit horizon

sunrise unveiled a promise of treasure
demure as petals enjoining midday
grey clouds thin in billowy summer breeze
freeze a moment before this day consumes

Honeyed whispers of wind
Caressing the water's smooth surface,
Reflecting the evening sky
Indigo, as blueberries, over-ripe
And the silver sliver of the moon's smirk
Piercing through the pine
If only I could lock this moment in my heart
like a locket
Breathe the evergreen breeze
And carry the stars with me wherever I may go
And feel this moment as I would feel
A photograph between my fingertips

sunset reveals firefly melodies
meandering starlit rivers flow,
flowered evening fragrances wafting;
welcomes a momentous nocturne
