My Twilight Wish

Waiting for the sunrise
Reminded me of my innocent wish
In the pleasant silence of the night
I took a ride with my wish
To the top of a fresh green hill
Surrounded by the twilight and silence of the night
I found myself lying down on the grass and facing the sky
The rising moon was at its fullest
The addition of the beauty was with the sparkling stars
The cold air breeze
Embraced my skin so deeply
I felt it in my heart
And sensation poured out of my eyes
Was the twilight what I waited for so long?
No sound heard
No existence felt, but Yes
The twilight everywhere
Yes I could feel my wish so close
Yes I could feel the night
Yes I could spend hours on this thought
The soft spoken sunrise brought me back from my innocent wish with a golden morning greeting. . .

    This poem is unbelievably beautiful. Looking at the stars at night is my favorite thing to do, and reading about your connection with them made me feel like we aren’t so separated by distance. Keep on writing! You are really talented.

    This poem is beautiful. I cannot relate to living in a reality where the solitude of darkness is more favorable to the bustling, bursting beauty of light. I do understand the necessity of finding personal calm amidst conflict. I think that the message of naturalism that you portray is so potent. Many philosophers and wise cultures have believed that if you are close to nature you will be close to your humanity. I would like to know how you feel about the morning, and what that morning represents for you. Overall, this poem is great. Thank you for sharing.
