She comes before dark

Trying to frighten the night

As the sunshine dims


Released fallen leaf

huddles below my window

Waiting to embrace the snow.


Dusk this winter’s eve

Refraining from a short day

Lights a bright candle.

    I feel the darker days in these words and am brightened by the candle of dusk.

    I love dusk, and lighting candles against the darkness……and my cool electric pretend-fire which looks so cosy and does not require chopping wood – which I did for years in Tofino. (Nothing beats a real wood fire though.I loved it.)

    I love the idea of dusk as refrain of a short day, tring to frighten night! Inthe midst ofthis, one shaking leaf waiting for winter doesn’t seem much!

    we are somewhere in between…
    the seasons; and the light
    & the darkness

    Such a perfect poem of the dark and the light. I always hate when the clocks go back and suddenly it’s dark before 5 pm. I will light a bright candle. 🙂

    “Dusk this winter’s eve

    Refraining from a short day

    Lights a bright candle.” – This is brilliant. Loved it!

    short and sweet, just like the time dusk is allocated.
    loved the images you painted. 🙂

    And the days are getting shorter! And soon we will have to embrace the snow.
