“There’s a special quality to the loneliness of dusk, a melancholy more brooding even than the night’s.”
― Ed Gorman, Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool
Golden light of dusk fading gray
as daylight’s candle snuffed
drifting smoky clouds linger
a sense of peace surrounds
this sacred primitive scene.
And in this memory we will abide
forever and a day as we slip away
in a weathered skiff for two.
