A touch of blush, soft and warm, blooms
Across the eventide sky, bathing the earth
In myriad pastel hues, heavenly grace
I soak it all in my shriveled, fractured heart.
Lifting my gnarled, bony fingers I touch the breeze
That flits in through the gaps, unconfined
And I close my eyes, floating on its wings
Unrestrained for a moment in time
The evening, a shy blushing bride
Beckons a love, so dark to her light
The night eternal sets in, engulfing all
In a deceptive lull, cocooned in mystery.
Amidst the hoary gray expanse
Caging my life’s essence and heart’s desire
I wish for an evening, from a distant past
Under a sinless sky, holding you to me.
