"Curtain Call"


Curtain Call

I can't decide upon goldenrod,
dandelion, or just plain old yellow,
but tonight's buttery light
melts into mother earth
as periwinkle sky winks, blinks
and yawns her way toward midnight.

So much I love silhouettes itself
against evening's curtain call
as twilight's music begins.

This is linked with "dVerse "Quadrille #5 - melt" - a poem in 44 words, no more, no less, and this week's word we must use is "melt".

I love that line: 'Tonight's buttery light melts into Mother Earth'.

The sunset is wonderful, there is a sense of tranquility and rests to come... right now it's the perfect time of year to really live in the sunset...

Thanks, I needed that quiet beauty to remind me that despite the terrorist chaos that has descended upon the world, we have a choice to take a breath, be thankful for our families, touch the face of AllThatIs, & let twilight lull us into the sweetest of slumber.

Got so immersed in the poem I had to read again to find out how you used 'melt'. Loved it.
