30 June – Goodnight gloaming

Goodnight gorgeous gloaming,
you perfect evening lantern show.
Thanks for flooding my bedroom
with your magic golden glow.
My west window’s a portal
to time between times’ shine,
to somewhere more than sunset
I ache to capture, keep as mine.
It feels wrong to close my curtains
in the presence of such light
but despite summer’s solstice,
I need it to be night.
So goodnight gorgeous gloaming
with your halcyon hints of glory,
return soon so I can climb the stairs
and retrace my steps into story.
