Dusk



darkness falls below
snowy peaks dusted by pink
clouds, last host of day

This is in gracious response to the weekly prompt "Dusk/Twilight" at
One Deep Breath. I love dusk, especially in the winter. I like to sit with the lights off and watch the deepening blue hues of dusk take over the sky.

Very interesting blogs you've got there, I've had a browse through and that made me want to spend more time here; will be back.
Lovely photo; great illustration for the haiku.
Greetings from Sydney

Lovely image and haiku Michelle.
I love afternoon light the best as well. It becomes twilight before we know it. Van Morrison refers to this light as "magic time." I completely agree. There's something special about that glow.

neasa- welcome, thank you.

g- it was a peaceful moment.

studio- hi Laurel, yes, it is a magic time. I forgot about Van's take on that. I love his music, especially Astral Weeks.
