The Other Side Of Twilight

Spread the love

Sun-kissed,
though brittle and dried
I wonder
what stripped them of tangerine hue
softly
the evening takes my name
and sighs
as a thousand epiphanies run through my mind
the world’s substituted “trolling with lust,”
perhaps
sunflowers had a hard time resisting temptation too.

  1. Like climbing a stamen, we aren’t given much until we see color “trolling with lust” and then the gorgeousness of the encounter knocks us down with heavy heated presence. Nicely done.

  2. Now that’s a harsh but astute observation of the modern age, substituting trolling with lust. I suppose both do get the blood moving.

  3. Ooh, such a tightly-wound verse, binding this experience and observation with a certain wisdom and insightful acknowledgment. I love it! Your romanticism always shines through in your words in such a beautiful manner.
