Gloaming ~ Quintilla Sunset Poem

Gloaming

Glorious roads journeyed upon
horizons outstretched to greet me
sunrays glow rare intensity
twilight mist conclude days foregone
golden paths light eternity.

Ohayo Ochi,

I love short poetry forms, like the haiku they fit my work well! Thanks for stopping and reading. Think of good things on your busy days! :)
