As the Evening Sky Grew Dark

Held inside your open hand,

Laying upon your patterned dress,

Sleeping beneath the oak tree,

While the sun reluctantly set.

*

Shadows drawn out across the park side,

Yellowing news on a crinkled page,

You asked me what I was thinking,

I whispered back your name.

*

Quick kiss, the lake that glistened,

Children chasing butterflies,

Toes touching, grass stained trousers,

Eyes rolling to the sky.

*

Hit high into the distance,

People started to cheer,

The moon appeared so silently,

So lonely but so near.

*

Long grass kept us hidden,

But for the bugs beneath the green,

Sharing stories just between us,

The things that we had seen.

*

No need to talk to anyone,

In dusk’s tranquil light,

We lay there just together,

As day turned in to night.

  2. This is so delightfully descriptive, I can feel, see and hear it! It draws me in to experience it as I read.
