Nature’s Evensong

and the soulful sound

of the sea

seduce my senses

in the calm

of this still summer’s eve

ripples roll gently towards me

from the red sun-kissed sea

silhouette sails

hug the horizon

purposeful gulls

tread the foreshore

forever watchful

while I

a silent spectator

scan the scene

evening’s tableau


and yet wholly alive

entranced and awed


beyond beauty

by Nature’s evensong

its benediction

on a desperate world

  1. Evocative poetry Roland. I loved the power in your last two lines. Sunsets like these always force reflection of where our place is in this Universe.
