Abstract of Memories!

I walk down the nostalgic boulevard of memories.

As fading sunlight lingers across the horizon,

vintage sepia toned to vivid vibrancy,

my repertoire of reminisces,

paints a mélange of emotions.

Portrays an abstract of my life gone by

before waning under the dusky veil.

At Peace!

The warm breeze carries moist salinity of the endless sea,

the hues of the receding sun begins its final dance across the horizon,

choreographing each movement with graceful swirls.

As dusk ambles across the skyline with a sublime gait

leaving a trail of scarlet dreams,

I sit by the shore watching this celestial spectacle unfold.

Just as the broody clouds pale against its luminous crimson glow

my stress from the chaotic day releases,

bringing an untold sense of calm to my weary mind.

The day ebbs across the vistas

dusk descends in hushed tones

wistful whispers echo into the

somber stillness of the horizon,

tussled thoughts fight for freedom.

Inhaling burning despondent puffs

blowing smoky tendrils of melancholy

in pursuit of that elusive muse

crumbled papers, tainted with failed words,

carpet the floor, with insipid fragments of litter.

The eyes glimpse home bound birds, flap balletic wings

flutter across the grace of silhouetted branches

 the beaming orb illuminates the nimbus

awakens the slumbering quill from silence

inks the papyrus with poetic colors.

Sun’s Trail….A Haiku Poem!


Embryonic rays

dawn exalts a coral blush

horizon aflame


mercury soars high

punctures the billowy clouds

casts a scorching gaze


the western skyline

brims with wisps of lavender

aesthetic adieu.





In response to Eugenia’s weekly prompt: Sapphire

Silhouette Photography of Trees and Birds

Home bound avian’s greet the eventide

before settling in their branched abode

sun gives a parting embrace to the sapphire horizon

painting hues of lavender swirls

the silhouettes amidst the ebony skyline

welcome the glitterati of stars

the shadows merge into the emerging monochrome

before the velvety darkness envelopes all.
