Lavender Twilight Descends

Another day ends as lavender twilight descends
A gentle breeze whispers with mockingbird’s trills
As the vibrant tangerine sun sinks and transcends
The brisk evening air tumbles, bringing cold chills

A gentle breeze whispers with mockingbird’s trills
Singing with his broken heart of melancholic love
The brisk evening air tumbles, bringing cold chills
As his voice carries through green boughs above

Singing with his broken heart of melancholic love
I’ve lived the agony of heartache he’s been through
As his voice carries through green boughs above
Crooning his sorrow in hues of dark indigo blue

I’ve lived the agony of heartache he’s been through
When vibrant tangerine sun sinks and transcends
He croons his sorrow in hues of dark indigo blue
Another day ends as lavender twilight descends.

  1. I just spend quite a bit of time repeating the phrase “sun sinks and transcends”… aloud. So long that certain members of my family began to stare and wonder. What can I say? I love the sound the words make–brilliant choice–and the imagery they invoke.

  2. This is breathtakingly beautiful, Linda! ❤️ The Pantoum is a difficult form to achieve and you have done wonders with it! 😍 I especially love; “The brisk evening air tumbles, bringing cold chills/As his voice carries through green boughs above.”

  3. I love the pantoum form too (though haven’t written one in ages). You’ve chosen a beautiful subject for this one – and although the picture is not necessary for appreciation of the poem, it is a very lovely illustration of it.
