An Evening Rumination
Yash Seyedbagheri


Sitting on deck,
pink and pale and purple
long shadows dance over verdant, voluptuous hills
phone relegated to its cell
no trucks roaring
no smells of exhaust
only the whisper of wind
trees bending with acrobatic aplomb
country road shimmers
a crescent moon dances
through duskís purple sweat

I love this colorful vibrant poem. There are many unique images to admire: verdant, voluptuous hills, trees bending with acrobatic aplomb, country road shimmers, and a crescent moon dances through dusks purple sweat.

This poem is one deep breath of peace... "a crescent moon dances in dusk's purple sweat" seals the deal. Well done, Yash!

Life is good, eh? And so is this poem of being where you are and appreciating it. My favorite line is "phone relegated to its cell" while the spirit soars.
