At Day’s End


Colour: lime green and burnished red blend, intertwine facing blue spruceness and the towering hulk of oak crowded by a craggy cedar.

Dragonflies: Their lifelike existence as seen only in the light emitted, gently flutter in a dying breeze, vibrant, flickering, they dazzle on in the darkness.

Water: a swishless body serene flecked by the occasional spotlight reflection, sleeps now.

Calm: no leafy sway, no thunderous burst, the tranquility takes over the evening scene as birds take their rest at end of day.

Chairs: sturdy, empty, awaiting the boisterous play of spirited summer fun, now sit blanketed in shadows and the occasional critter out to explore their rustic backs.
