enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

stretches out 
before me, grey & 
shimmering lovely starkness
broken by breeze, leaves & loon
call stars in the offing
leaning back 
is all it takes to begin 
its release from shore
silver beckoning
bowl of twilight


  1. Enjoying exactly the same effect myself only on a dock on a river. Happy trails to you.

  2. I wish I could be there. I love the whole feel of your words, Harlequin.The lay out too. It looks like a sail and a boat to me. But that is just me.

  3. I love this, especially the anchor shape that I see in it.

  4. Let the twilight come and take me to the night, I am ready for the beauty of the darkness lying on my back looking at stars I do not know the name of.

  5. taking a rest and lying back in my little boat. Thank you. :)

  6. Mr.C.--wish i was on a lake or a river! this was a "wanna be" poem, a protest against my too busy schedule right now--it's my light at the end of the tunnel. thanks for the visit
    SarahA-thanks for the kind words; glad the shape worked ( kind of...:))
    Madame--thanks ... i was hoping to achieve some nautical shape and i am glad it resembles something!! cheers
    WM-thanks for this nicely lyrical comment
    Sarah T-thank you, too. glad my " here's hoping" poem struck a chord

  7. "silver beckoning
    bowl of twilight"
    Wonderful line - great poem (and it's shaped like a tree :)

  8. Pisces -- i like that line, too. glad you enjoyed this one. and it does kinda look like a tree....
    i admire anyone who can make a shape poem... i am grateful i can get it to be something other than middle of the page or justified left or right!! cheers

  9. Beautiful poem and writting still. It is true all it takes its the relief from shore, that is the hole point of this.

    Be well my friend

  10. mariana--thanks for the visit; i like what you say about the relief.... i am leaning towards it more and more.
    cheers !
