In the Evening Light


In the Evening Light

as the sun is about to set
the light plays with the wood
tiny flies buzz a last flight
around the leaves 
chasing the sun rays

crickets sound a last song
birds settle for the night
a mouse runs across the path
squirrels run up the trunks
then all is silent
but for the wind 
rustling through the trees
saying good night

all is quiet 
the sun went down
sleep well, my wood
and have nice dreams

This is not the wood I own - but the wood close to my home that I love to walk through (and sometimes even jog). It's such a lovely place in nature. I enjoy thinking about it and experiencing all the different plays of light and shadow in all seasons.
