Twilight

At twilight time the smog makes a rainbow – Tom Petty

Watching you joyfully run to him

in the nascent twilight  

as it caresses the leaves with its   

mellifluous cadence, evoking   

bittersweet nostalgia –  

the spice of yesteryear, now amorphous   

like the mist that sheathes the lake,  

I wrap myself in the idea of us again.

  3. No bitterness here, but instead a beautiful tribute to love, lived and lost. So many lovely phrases to appeal to the senses and I like the unique way you incorporated the word.

    Love the close as it gives a finality! It evokes a picture of togetherness at the end!
