In Afternoon Light
In Afternoon Light A shock of light, That tingled upon the water. Silvered diamonds, joyous. And brought to mind Every moment that shone, Happy and memorable. Warmth swirled that afternoon Like a quiet shroud Enveloping all, imparting Its hopeful kiss upon Skin and face and thoughts, That shone in the sun, Hung low, and sinking into A brilliant sky, deep in hue. Of dreamlike blues And shimmering whites. And we walked on, As that shock of light, Shone.
