Adieu to Today

Spectator am I, a witness to view

The evening ritual – knitting of dew;

Painting of destinies, darkening dreams,

Death of the daylight, refraction of beams

Which bow to reflect the Creator’s delight;

Adieu to Today – I bid you good night.

      That is SO funny – I was mentally reciting ‘Adieu to you and you and you!’ and trying not to let it creep into my writing as I composed! Great minds…. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This one is lovely and reverent–can’t find the exact words, so must be that it speaks for itself!! God bless you, Melody–love, Caddo

    Lovely picture and poem – Saskatchewan looks like a nice place to be in the evening! ๐Ÿ™‚

      ‘Land of the Living Skies’ is our motto – harvest sunsets are remarkable because of all the grain dust in the air – somehow the colours are extra magnificent. Harvest is just around the corner, so there should be lots of these to come!
