Gazing into Twilight

Sarah Farnsworth

Gazing into the peaceful, smoky twilight,

vision skewed by the setting sun

spilling over the horizon

with its pinkish, yellow glow,

you could hear the shadow’s laughter

jumbled among the whispers

of the towering brown trees,

telling stories of unseeming truths.


The smell of spring exploding

in your nose as you

breathe in the beautiful blossoms,

popping back to life after the

quiet, dead winter.


You would dance through the narrow river

and feel the cool water splashing

between your playful toes.

But soon dusk disappears,

the shining of the dark, gray moon

slowly taking over,

as the forest begins to doze off,

welcoming the night’s silence

patiently waiting for

morning to come again.
