good night

a hazy half moon
skies darkening soon
smudges of grey abound
the whisper of leaves
blowing in breeze
a settling down all around

shadow are creeping
from corners, deepening
colour a memory away
occasional cooing
of pigeons roosting
the end of another day…


  1. How very soothing and peaceful. You. Are. So. Good.

  2. warmth comes forth !
    very relaxing, have a cup of chamomile tea with this one.
    thank you Shadow

  3. Sometimes I don't want the end of a day to come.

    Other times, I am overjoyed to finally be at the end of a day.

    Thanks for the post Shadow.

  4. Nighty night dear girl...

  5. What a pretty picture, it makes me look forward to the days end.

  6. I started to relax, then the pigeons came out. Always pigeons.

  7. I sure like yours better, Shadow.

    But, you brought me some memories with your beautiful words.

    This is one of the first songs I played on my violin c1940. My mother on piano, and my sister on the 'cello:

    "When day is done and shadows fall,
    I dream of you.
    When day is done, I think of all the joys we knew
    That yearning returning to hold you in my arms,
    Won't go, love, I know, love,
    Without you night has lost its charms!

    When day is done and grass is wet with twilight's dew,
    My lonely heart is sinking with the sun.
    Although I miss your tender kiss the whole day through,
    I miss you most of all when day is done."

  9. I love the precision and clarity of your chosen language. Words like, "smudges" and "creeping" add layers of depth and complexity to your simple reflection.
