AFTERGLOW

A presage to the eloquence of time:
aesthetic,
trancing,
encapsulating.

How oft mind wanders
in a sea of radiant peace
void of forebodings but glitters.

Surely stillness creates
mellifluous elegiac contentment
to a weary being.

Such ageless spectrum of day
defines its momentous beauty.
Titillating, then fades away.

All the earth's secrets are gone
as slowly velvet darkness canopies the sky.
And stellar confronts the lost Milky Way,
illuminating the universe till the rise of dawn.
