Skylarks at Night

———

Dangling from silver threads

Mistily glowing beneath the clouds…

The guardian began her slow descent

hovering just above the

still pond…

with her only desire

to…

comfort…

to console…

to caress…

to kiss…

to touch…

and to love…

before gliding back up

to her celestial home…

closing her eyes

and resting…

just resting…

till the next time

the need calls

her..

      • I totally get that..one morning I bundled my kids..and rushed camera and all to our lake to catch the morning fog…other times it’s the angle of the sun through the clouds…the shots happen from the beauty, timing, and a good eye to catch them…the eye, not everyone is gifted with…be glad you are:)

  1. David, the picture is divine! I just adore!
    It is impressive how nature gives us what’s beautiful artwork!
    How nice of surprised, in photography, clouds settled, forming an angel. Absolutely lovely!
      I like your poem very much! Thank you so much for your sharing with us all that is beautiful!
    Be blessed David with happiness! 🙂

  2. Oh my goodness – this is “the one” as you would say David…the photo — it’s mystical and Divine!! I see her – and your words flow like music as companion. Just breathtaking. Pure LOVE!

  3. I think I’m a guardian…I have the same desires…and would like to skip the rest of life, and just focus on:
    comfort…

    to console…

    to caress…

    to kiss…

    to touch…

    and to love…

    And then rest until I am called.

    Love the heart of this one. 🙂 Sam
