Night Bliss

Albert Bierstadt ~ Moonlight Isle of Shoals

Sun-warmed body
welcomes the night's early chill

soft-pink gloaming
stretches fingers toward the crescent moon

sweet aromas lifted on whimsical tendrils of night air
roses magnolias and new-mown grass

the mind yields to pleasure
to the inconsequential, to the joy

moonlight smooths softens and blurs
the sharp edges of the bright hot daylight

offering an invitation 
to sleep and the vistas of dreams.
