Sipping Twilight

Folder: 
Emotions

 

The sullen sea from my balcony mirrors gray sky 
it’s been hauntingly lazy,
raining, two summer days now.

And like the ocean, the dog days ebb,
low whispers,from an abandoned conch shell beckoning me
Come to the sea..... 
Placing pink side against my ear, 
from inside comes a hollow sound and
my  inner child hears the ocean captured!
Passion is about everything,anything

But,
Passion always seeks more
from the hearts of lovers……
The sultry breeze caresses
like your breath on my skin.
The sweet perfume of you
lingers like salt air and clings like sand to moist legs.
I'm lost in my dream
But,
in the far lavender horizon,
the ocean swallows the sun 
I'm sipping twilight and waiting for paradise.

While reading this lovely calm piece

two images came before my eyes
(1) Gradual darkening just after sundown
until it is pitch dark
(2) A few moments of light which we
can't hold on to however much we try
The magic moments of Twilight...

Yes

It is my personal favorite time in a day.

i surfed till twilight.

i appreciate your thoughts and words.

but,

it is deeper than twilight

it's about a love lost,

waiting for love again.

thank you so very much!

Love Gone/Love Again

The images are so haunting, I was lost in the ocean swallowing the sun. Nice brush strokes ~ the reading was fine.
