Colors Fade

The horizon becomes the world’s edge

falling away into shadowed lands

that beckon to the watchers

Come slip beyond dusk’s final stand

and find light unending here

slow drip of honey and diamond

and a river of morning’s nectar

meandering onward into days yet to come

After the brush strokes falter

and the colors above fade to gray

all of us here might finally lie down

beneath everything we tried to escape

and watch it there above us in crystalline splendor

rambling onward to the places we dare not go

Will you be watching the US presidential debate tonight?

  1. This is such a lovely piece Mitch. I especially liked these lines:

    “falling away into shadowed lands

    that beckon to the watchers

    Come slip beyond dusk’s final stand”

    Hope you are having a good day my friend.

    Yes, we will watch the debate although politics in this house is a dangerous topic. My husband gets so worked up. We are pretty liberal folks so the last years have been upsetting beyond words. We worry about our world.

    Take care my friend. Hugs 🤗 Joni
