Calmness

Calmness

Twilight falls quietly
unexpected
What was day
comes to an end
Abruptly,
disconnected
 
A star is born in
the darkness
of new night
Encompassing,
brilliant in its
starkness
 
Stillness slows 
pounding breast
Calming the mind
slowing the heart
Tranquility
sweetens the zest

    I wish for something soothing like this… (maybe it’s a weekend)

      Yes! I understand. I’m feeling a little ragged right now and long for a break

    I like the thought of a star being born somewhere out in the darkness.
