Dusk – NaPoWriMo 2017 #1


the gloaming lingers on
in dusty blue and gray
dewy mist descending

breeze-tossed trees a-swaying
daylight softly fading
the gloaming lingers on

canopy in ebon
moon and star bedazzled
in dusty blue and gray

melancholy passage
shadowy in between
dewy mist descending

Silence, Waterfall and Forest by Arthur Bowen Davies

In the forest dark and deep
near an ancient rowan tree
she leans in so she can hear
faerie voices on the wind.

Faerie King has led her here
where the wood nymphs come to swim
twinkling on the rippling pools
in the forest dark and deep.

Overwhelming is the sound
of the cascade’s rushing din,
woodnote chatter, eagle shrieks,
near the ancient rowan tree.

Long shadowed ebon tresses
cloak the night as dew descends
muting sleepy earthen sounds
she leans in so she can hear.

Persevering to the end
with abandon, she prevails,
ever soft the twinkling bells
faerie voices on the wind.
