Cameoed against close of day
horses' shadows stretch
upon evening tide's gentle cleansing
of field and grove.
I close my calendar,
honor this candlelight hour
when birdsong settles
and Primrose awaits her Sphinx.

* a night pollinator, the sphinx moth pollinates Evening Primroses. I also took artistic liberty as primroses aren't quite blooming yet - I believe they start in June and July - maybe May but not sure.
My pencil has been quite busy filling my calendar in these days - year-end school performances & commitments - not to mention trying to stay on track to finish up homeschooling my youngest two by the end of May - AND prepare for our household move to the mountains come mid-June. I apologize for not visiting and commenting on your blogs as much as I like.
