This week, ‘weekend Inspiration’ is another from our wonderful friend of the ministry, Lorraine Szabo. Lorraine has written many poems, and we are blessed that she make them available to us. So enjoy this new poem from Lorraine called, Evening Hours.
As the sun circled, lowered and bled
towards the silent sea, cooling shifting sands,
the fingers of shade sifted and spilled shadows
across the land.
Evening clouds of lavender shed their daylight robes,
sliding time into dark night for sigh at midnight,
in slow motion to swallow and suck
at passing passages.
Seeking solace in the slumber hours,
Sweeping stillness into a stirring of dreams,
as crescendo of cicadas cease,
as birds nestle under feathers necks,
as moths beat wings to the call of owls.
A hush descends, breezes twist and touch
in gentle whispers of a caress.
Road ribbons meander in pre-dawn dust as
headlights and tires die away, few pass by.
Trees hover above earth undisturbed
except for minutes mice or snuffling rabbit
amidst insect interlopers
scurrying in moist dew.
As a moon of sliced silver leaks to stain
chimney, painted roof and closed door, it
wraps around fences
of shimmering wire.
Evening songs capture serenades of solitude,
the peace of nature gives birth to new days to
travel future paths of universal life to be,
a journey sensing life
in the stillness of our souls.
