Refraction In Twilight




Evening enters
Our garden on rails
From an easement
Between inquisitive
Eucalyptus  and
Welcome winter night.
It rolls under cloud-lit
Heights singing over
Distant ringing steel.
I hear wheels, a
Train, far away
In a promise of rain.

  1. I love that, Geo., - the "inquisative eucalyptus" (never saw it like that before), and to hear wheels "in a promise of rain". The whole poem is optimistic, thank you!

  2. I love the Normaphoto. The lights look like stars have landed just to decorate your garden.

    1. Thanks Emma. Norma has a lot of pull with tremendous universal forces and can light up pretty much anything.

  3. Your poetry draws in such imagery. Sigh.

  4. The picture and the poem are so pretty.

    I hope "some" of that rain north of you moves south to your area.

    1. Some rain has already come our way, thanks to dray-dragons tethered to ocean storms and locomotives pulling clouds over the Sierras.

    1. Tom, when I need peace and assurance I pull this poem out and rework it. When I need lovely, I look at Norma.

  6. Twilight is a great time of the day to reflect. It's like nature's way of saying calm down and look back to what you've done in the day. :)

  8. ". . . under cloud-lit
    Heights singing over
    Distant ringing steel . . ." Nice! I love twilight -- the most magical time of the day.

    Best wishes to you and Norma for happy holidays and a great year ahead.
