Eventide


‘Tis my favorite One, of two Favorites …
this Eventide of day.
When all is glowing … and nothing a glare …
as I look across the room.

Fingers find their way, around the keyboard,
in the soft, dancing glow, of candlelight …
To avoid the perverse harshness,
of artificial lighting.

For I am enjoying the comfort,
of the Indistinct ...
In this freedom from the confines,
of absolute Definition.

All about me is bathed,
in lovely Homogeneity …
That is this world,
of Grays.

Absent those course, and unyielding,
Blacks and Whites ...
That allow for neither Interpretation,
nor convivial Compromise.

Could be rolling Hills,
in a beckoning distance ...
Just as well as the shapes, and contours,
of elements of my tiny Chamber.

Cozy, and soft Abiding,
are the sensations, known to my Awareness ...
As I rest in an easy Acceptance,
of Life’s twilight Lullaby.

Lovely. You're an amazing poet, John-Michael. Thank you!

John-Michael said...

Your sweet Presence, in this Place of my intimate reflection, is something that I relish, My Dearest NiteByrd. Whatever ability to express I can summon, it will always be far short of adequate to convey my love for all that is so beautifully, You. Thank You, Dear Friend for encouraging my feeble efforts to speak.

Lovingly ...

Wow... very nice. Perfect cadence, like breathing.
I'm very happy I came here.
Thank you!

peace,
Chuck

I happily bid You "Welcome," My New Friend Chuck. Your pleasant countenance and kind encouragements are a bolstering and gladdening Presence.

I enjoyed my visit with your offered work, on your site, as well.

Looking forward to many Tomorrows ...

I have often likened your poetry to music and this is a further beautiful indication of that, my dear friend.

Twilight is my favourite time - the precious moments between waning light and velvet darkness. Your words are a perfect backdrop to a lovely walk I took tonight with pale pinks and greys brushing the sky. Thank you.

John-Michael said...

I find the Eventide to be (as is the dawning Twilight) a sweet place where the stark clarity of the Day's all-to-clear demands ... are muted, and made obscure, and welcoming, to Flexibilities and Negotiation. I am pleased that You too, Darling Suza, find the greeting and dismissing of your Day made kinder by this sacred time.

Lovingly ...

i do eventide far better than the a.m. version since i am more fully awake to appreciate it's shifting light. and i am glad to think of that time of changing shadows as being soothing to you.

Bail ó Dhia ort, John-Michael, on this Saint Patrick's day. It means, "The blessing of God on you." Of course, I think you already have that, so a bit superfluous :-)

Just Joni said...

Could be the warmth of words wrapping me in a hug and helping me kick start my morning...I should know by now to come here first. Wishing you love in your day JM...you're off to a good start.

John-Michael said...

As soothing, My Darling Lime, as the sweet love and thoughts, of a Dear Friend. Hence, I find, in You, just such blessed respite.

Lovingly ...

John-Michael said...

The expression of the very Best, of God's blessing, known in the Presence of a Dear Friend ... is what I embrace in You, Jim, my SulDog Friend. For could ne'er be any blessing greater than the Presence of loving Camaraderie.

I love Ya, Darlin' ...

John-Michael said...

Your tender embrace has me cloaked in snuggly Joy, My Precious Joni. How Dear, to my Soul, You are!

I love You ...
