Last Hour of Daylight

on November 9, 2013

Sunburst

The last hour of daylight
Reflects the golden hour
Moments before twilight
Engulfs every flower

Squirrels no longer scamper
Searching for food to store
Birds rest in nearby brambles
Along Nature’s floor

Creatures of the night
Come out to eat and play
Such nocturnal partyers
Sleep through the light of day

  Along the horizon
Silhouettes claim the view
Floating as in limbo
Within the blackening hue

Somewhere in the distance
A soft whisper is heard
Sigh of contentment
The one and only word

Ah-h-h-h-h-h!
