inspirational poetry: day's end

This week’s inspirational poetry: Day’s End

I’m inspired by creativity in all corners of the world but especially in nature, most especially London parks, the woods and beaches of East Sussex and, of course, Ireland. You’ll find lots of poetry here on the blog and you can support me to write more, including some exclusively for you, on patreon (see below).

Inspirational Poetry: Day’s End

There are days
that don’t want to leave us.

As evening comes in, they
put on their finery:
cloaks of gold
and amber
and copper
and rose

edged with flames
of aureate, ever-burnishing orange.
Elements that last lifetimes, aeons.

Dressed for departure,
they linger on the threshold,
languid, dazzling, fine,
like they have forever
tucked away in their pockets and folds,
though we both know
they’re on their way
away

hey hold us as long as they can
then kiss us goodbye
with a whisper.
Though we must go, they say,
let us not be forgotten.
