Poetry Sharing

So, today is going to be a very short post. I want to concentrate on my 3000 words after work today, and work won't be over for several more hours (I'm sneaking off to write this).

On today's post, I want to share a poem I have written. I decided to do so because of inspiration from my wonderful follower (and, I hope, friend), Rebecca who hails over at the life of an ordinary girl blog. She posted a beautiful song that her friend wrote, which you can view here.

Anyway, without further ado, I'd like to present my poem, Sunset.

A little glow
Comes to the sky
A tinge of color
To catch the eye
Slowly ascending
The fire climbs
As before it has
A million times
Orange meets pink
Yellow meets red
Regretfully the sun
Wakes from bed
A sleepy yawn
A taunting glimmer
Full of light
And spark and shimmer
The world comes alive
As light conquers dark
And the sun is born
From one small spark
Glow becomes shine
As sun wins sky
And softly moon sinks
With hushed goodbye

Hope you enjoyed that! Please tell me what you think, I always feel so vulnerable about my creative work. I'd really appreciate your opinion! Now, time for our writing quote of the day:

A perfectly healthy sentence, it is true, is extremely rare.  For the most part we miss the hue and fragrance of the thought; as if we could be satisfied with the dews of the morning or evening without their colors, or the heavens without their azure.  ~Henry David Thoreau

Thanks for all your time and please tune in next post! Sorry it is so short, but it's all I can offer on such a busy day. Hope you enjoyed it, anyhow!


  1. Beautiful poem! You have a wonderful way with words!

    Though it makes me jealous that I can't be more eloquent like you with my own writing =/ lol

  2. @Hazel Ahh! Thanks so much for the wonderful compliment. I'm so glad you liked the poem.

    But, seriously, don't be jealous. You are perfectly eloquent! I love reading what you write.

    You're very kind. I dearly appreciate how nice you were to leave this comment and say such beautiful things. Did you really like it that much? Or could you not think of anything else to say?

    Either way, I truly am grateful you took the time! Have a great day and happy writing!

  3. Oh! I love the poem... I wrote one yesterday. I should post it...

    Looks like you've been too busy to post the last couple o days too... hope to read more from you soon!

  4. No I was being sincere, I really liked the mental image your words evoked in my imagination :)

  5. @Sabrina Thanks! I'm so glad you loved it! Thank you for taking the time to comment and follow. I really appreciate the kindness.

    @Waiting Oh, thank you! You should definitely post your poem! I would love to read it. Yeah, I explain my absence in my newest post. Sorry I've been gone! Thanks for the wonderfully kind comment.

    @Hazel Oh, well, thank you so much! It wasn't really a doubt of your sincerity, but more of doubting my own work. Ahh, I'm glad you could see it.

    Thanks for the comment (again)!
