Crystal Sunlight

by Richard Colinson

This is an evening like no other
With crystal sunlight intruding
Across the shoulder of the bay

I am a very tired man
With yet more to do tonight
But I follow the paths of the sunbeams
Playing with ripples on the water
All the way out to where the water meets
The sweetness of the sky
In a hazy, indistinct line

And there I catch the echo
Of aeons of rest
And exhale
A small, slow breath

A restful moment, beautifully limned.

Peace is found in the ebb and flow of a force older than you, older than your town, older than your country...the constant shift from daytime beauty to twilight gloaming, it is enough to revive, restore and rejuvenate, if even for a little while. Enjoy the view...

Beautifully stated and thoughts we can all relate to.
