Twilight’s Beach

Warming fire on twilight’s beach adds calm

and informal conversation.

Family gathers closer

as the mauve sky darkens.

Marshmallows on sticks

turn crispy soft.

Day fades fast,

dimly,

dark.

  1. I can feel the warmth of the fire and taste the marshmellows just toasted with the sweet sound of the ocean behind. Simply beautiful, Rose.

    Yes I like the sound of the
    marshmellows on sticks :)
    amid the tranquility of the
    ocean wave and crispness
    of the night as light fade
    into black… Delicious :)

    • So glad you like this, Izzy. I haven’t had a marshmallow over a fire in forever! Now I want one.

      So glad you got your problem fixed–I know it was driving you nuts. No hurry–don’t stress yourself.

      Love,

    • Yes, it’s similar to the tetractys–start with nine syllables and work your way down to one. Yes, this one I can see you doing very well. :)
