Evening Light

Poem By Tom Billsborough

My eyes now follow
Trajectories of shadows.
Deep, dark green hollows
Beneath the elder,
Enhancing the meadowsweet's
White feathers
And the cascades of jasmine
Swimming like stars.
And the pale greens and purples
The bi-coloured marjoram
And the spiked betony.
I am seduced by these contrasts
Which the light now fingers
Shaping its sculptures
With trajectories of shadows.

Metaphorically enriched piece of hope-giving poem. It's shortly salient. Much kudos to the skilled hand.
Thank you poet for sharing it

Inflicted long ago.
And even when you smiled

I am here and you are there

Pacific Days

Washing the barrier reef, the Coral sea,
Brings fresh nutrients to the coral blooms,
Chrysanthemums in splendour
Where fishes of deep orange, blue

Love Makes The World Go Flat

Love makes the world go flat,
Sparkling seascapes sweeping out
From rolling downs of wide horizons.
Shimmering skies absorbing eyes.
