POEMS: “Day’s ending” by Kathleen Gillum


Day’s Ending

I look towards the silent hills

At closing of the day,

As vaporous veils of silver mist

Descend upon the bay.

Through moving clouds, the pearly moon

Shines from a distant place Reflecting in the water’s depths

Her opalescent face.

The flowers close their petalled cups,

The wind is just a sigh,

A lonesome bird on homeward flight

Lets out a plaintive cry.

Trees stand out in silhouette

Against the fading light,

As dusk gives way to evening shadows,

Merging into night.

Everything seems hushed and still,

Bathed in afterglow.

Then one by one, the stars appear,

And gaze on earth below.

A time to quietly reflect,

To meditate or pray,

As calming peace steals on my soul,

And daylight slips away.

    What a wonderful merging of the natural beauty of nature with the artistry of the poet — thank you! I tried a google search as well as checking Amazon to find if there were any books of this marvelous writer, but, alas, couldn’t find any. If there is a way to get more poetry from this sensitive soul, I’m all ears. Hesikos


    1. Thank you so much for your comment dear friend! I am sorry, I also have searched for her poems, and books. I have found another poem which is a Winter /early spring poem I will be posting soon, but none of her books! She is a beautiful soul indeed! Sending you warm regards, Amira 🙂
