Late Afternoon

Updated on November 8, 2017

There is a magic

that happens in the

late afternoon

when the sun says goodnight

for the day

an energy that transforms

late in the day

while the colors of pink and orange

fill the sky

everything seems just

a little more somber

a little more quiet

where you can listen to your thoughts

more clearly

      Lovely poetic thoughts of the late afternoon. I love the mellow glow and then the purple twilight.

      Awe so true. thank you for this nice piece.

      But the sky lighting up like that, well with a 2nd grader it is not a peaceful time, more one of excitement.
