Stilly morning

 

stilly calm rises

as open-armed

morning grows

 

dew drops

like silent rain

sun-glitter

 

skyline

uncluttered with outliers

reflects the distant ocean

 

blue too deep to stir

not even swallow wings

disturb its face

 

water mirror

deep magic waiting for night

and glowing pearls of stars

Evening drifts

For the dverse prompt.

 

Sinking sun sweeps

with broad brush

swallows

 

dip drinking deep

of rain-washed air

golden motes

 

fly gnat-winged

into dusty dusk

of gilded light

 

night brings wings

soft silent

owl-flutter

 

I watch the first star wake

rocked in the cobalt cradle

of the cosmos.
