The Moment




I wait the moment when day whispers goodbye

in beauty, with palette’s smear of orange and gold

 before the moon announces her majesty, reminding shadows

they are born in her smile, and they fall at her mercy


the kiss of day to night, as eternal lovers meet once more

a never-ending romance balanced by time, and its passing

rapture of touch known only for these fleeting moments

both joy and sadness paint the sky in their brief embrace


I wait the moment when night whispers goodbye

in the new peek of tomorrow and a glorious awakening

when parting lovers steal the smile from the day

traveling in search of that moment divine

Your use of entrancing,

Your use of entrancing, mood-altering atmosphere injects so much power into this romantic escape. The clash of emotions in "the kiss of day to night" when "both joy and sadness paint the sky in their brief/ embrace" was particularly effective.


What also makes this work so well is the beguiling images and sense of place that speak for the ecstasy, the union, of the lovers and all else is left to the imagination. What is not said is glorious, open-ended . . . pure magic.
