The evening

The golden shafts of light cascade through the branches and leaves of the tress opposite

The shadows creeping silently across the lawn usher out the day in preparation for the night.

It is still warm, OH! that’s such a treat .To sit here in the garden wrapped in the evening’s glory

Celebrating  a glorious day , a once in a life time, stunningly sunny perfect story.

 

I was sure I could see fairies dancing, tiny wee beauties leaping and prancing.

Okay it was, maybe a trick of the light , as it flowed through the garden setting me off romancing!

Sipping  a glass of ruby red , drinking in the scene sipping at the wine

It was all so glorious, a precious moment it could be nothing less than divine!

Finally the in the last rays glow , the silent birds  now knew it was time for day to go

Leaving us here all hushed and quiet , basking in pure delight as we lay below.

Colours now all monochrome, gone the golds and greens of day slipped away into black and grey.

Sipping gently on  this succulent  wine, regarding  nights approach, pushing away all remnants of the day.

 

A collective sigh at nature’s glory, we raise our glasses  to her  story.

The flowers bend and go to sleep, the ivy silently and relentlessly creeps

Children from their bedroom windows peep.It has been a wonderful day, hey kids are you still not asleep

    Wow! I specially love”drinking in the scene”. What a magical journey through a beautiful evening. I feel dazed after reading it so lost in the imagery. I feel ‘as if of hemlock I have drunk’ (Keats ). Take care my friend and enjoy.

    The visual imagery I get from reading this is happy… and just a bit mischievous. *wink*
