The Still of Night


Cool breeze blows
As the Sun sets
Ripples ebb and flow
As twilight draws in
Last bird sings
As purple hues spread
Echoes on the wind
As daylight fades again
Light allows shadow
To bring calm all around
Silence gently settles
The still of night calls

      It’s just another view of the Lake, VK. 😉 Thanks. I’m still trying to spread a little peace and calm, if it will help.

    Such a calming and peaceful post, Tom. I think I’ll sleep better tonight just thinking about your words and beautiful image. 😴

      Thanks, Sylvia. I think ‘calming and peaceful’ is needed just now. 🙂
