Twilight is a time for sharing -

Twilight is a time for sharing - and a time for
remembering - sharing the fragrance of the 
cooling earth - the shadows of the gathering 
dusk - 

Here our two worlds meet and pass - the
frantic sounds of man grow dimmer as the light
recedes - the unhurried rhythm of the other 
world swells in volume as the darkness 
deepens -

It is not strange that discord has
no place in this great symphony of sound - 
it is not strange that a sense
of peace descends upon all living things - 
it is not strange that
memories burn more brightly - as the things of 
substance lose their line and form in the softness 
of the dark - 

Twilight is a time for sharing - and a 
time for remembering - remembering the things of 
beauty wasted by our careless hands - our frequent
disregard of other living things - the many songs 
unheard because we would not listen -

Listen tonight with all the 
wisdom of your spirit - listen too with
 all the compassion of your heart - 
lest there come another night  - 
where there is only silence - 

A great
    silence -

  1. Hi Kim, This is a gorgeous photo! and I really love the poem too. Nice selection.
    Posies by Piper is on East Guinea Road, Conway--which is just outside of Williamsburg. Take North Street, also called Ashfield Road from center of Williamsburg, turn right at the Y with the red house in the middle. That's Guinea Rd. She is probably opened another week or two this year. Enjoy!

  2. Thanks, Sherry. I can't believe those colors were real... the sky really looked like that last Friday on my way to New Hampshire. Thanks for the directions...I'm going to try and get there this weekend!
