Priory Cottage Night.

A perfect country evening.


Silence, softly pressed

upon the ear

holding the grace

of night on

lamplit wing.

In amber tones

the moon shall

call the whispers

of the hour,

and bring to me

the scent of peace.

Nice one, Sue. You have mastered the art of writing atmospheric poems to perfection.

Still trying to comment & critique, easy with this one…it’s beautiful. Luigi has it right Sue, it took you a while to find your niche; no holding you back now. On the critique side, I would look at punctuation.
