An Evening Promise


Riled up clouds go lumbering by,

Stirring up unsettled sky,

Wispy, misty moisture passes,

Light diffused upon its masses.


Sun’s last efforts streaming low,

Just before it lets us go,

Into darkness for some hours,

As the clouds spit out their showers.


Promises of warmer rays,

Shining down in coming days,

Though Sun sleeps behind the hill,

It will rise again, it will.


Morning rays revitalize,

More than we can realize,

But for now it says good night,

Telling all of us, “Sleep tight.”

    • Thanks, Jill. The light was really pretty just then. I only wish my camera skills were better to capture it all. It seems to want to filter out the pinks and reds. But you get the “picture” anyway.


  6. Dear Anneli,
    what a nice rhythmic flow of words 👍 going very well with the picture.
    Thanks for sharing.
    All the best

  8. I have to say, Anneli, there is some Robert Frost in you. Which I love.

    • I really had hoped to get out of that “jaunty little rhyme” kind of poetry, but I don’t have it in me to be more. Having said that, I do like Robert Frost’s poetry, so maybe that’s why I can’t let go of the rhyming couplets.


  9. Anneli, your header was a lovely surprise! And your poem was just as lovely! ❤
