Monday WRites 63


IN EVENING SHADE
I rest in the shade of evening to dwell,
In the abode where contemplation sits;
Not in a yoga mantric pose, no, a spell
Of yawns and legs outstretched, best suits
My manner of cool down evening to dwell,
Here yesterdays, of caresses, like spoonfuls
Melt, in hot tea; a teacup hones its smell
Of lemongrass, a herb, a soothing balm
To calm the tantrums of wish it could tell
Days of happiness past, to, return my heart;
I rest here, in the shade of evening to dwell.

  1. The heart is always restless if you have lost someone; however there is no better place that a garden to do so.

  2. Such a wonderfully emotive write, Gillena. Especially drawn by "Here yesterdays, of caresses, like spoonfuls melt, in hot tea; a teacup hones its smell of lemongrass, a herb, a soothing balm.." Beautifully poignant. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support.

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  4. Sometimes resting in the shade is necessary - to brace ourselves for what is, what was and what will be!
