If Twilight Met the Day

If Twilight Met the Day

Some people absorb the beauty of the world. Others display it to us. One creates her own, and gives it freely for all to embrace. 

This is for that one. I wish I could write more effectively to display the beauty she brings to this world, but the heart often thinks much deeper than the mind can muster. But, thank you for being you. 

Twilight paints a perfect praise 
For every moment of her gaze 
The mystery of a starlit sky 
Greets sunlight as it passes by 

And in her eyes of brilliant blue 
The moon appears and waves break through 
And faithful as the eventide, 
Her afterglow spreads far and wide 

Silver sparks of stars soar by 
As sunlight soon discovers why, 
The beauty of her night and day 
Must have their own, intrinsic way 

For if she came to us as one 
It might appear as if the sun, 
Had landed on a nearby shore 
And God revealed an open door 

And so she goes along in time, 
In brilliant peaks of love and rhyme 
Then, as her softness filters through 
We mortals fall in love with you.

Oh my gosh, Matthew!  This is so beautiful and romantic...with the most sweet sentimental expressions in your own unique creative verses.  I love how you weave images of nature and its beauty to describe her essence.  This feels so reverent and peaceful.  I felt like a floating spirit as I read your words.  You really are a versatile poet....from humor, to sad themes, to epic feeling love poems.  I am so impressed. Well, I guess I should give up writing romantic writes now....lol...I think you have me beat with such lovely verses...and you serve to really inspire.  I love how freely and humbly you write.  I loved this.  Thank you for sharing your amazing talents.  xo Love n Hugs, Cheerie  ;)

Cheerie, 
A comment like that, from you, is just the best praise one could wish for. You write love like nobody's business, so I'm humbled in your presence, but thank you! 
The Paramour of Passion liked me! Yay! 
Don't you dare give up on waxing romantic!! I will bludgeon myself for creating the monster that halted your romantic interludes, and then will unleash Parrotlegg upon your poetry! 
Thank you so much for all the kind praise, and encouragement. I don't think I'll ever think of myself as a serious poet, but it just feels nice to have that. 
Thanks! 
Stay awesome! 
Lurve, 

Matthew.

Thank you, Jilliputian, 
Ummm, which one is lovely, and which one is juvly? I've researched the word 'juvly'(as I never understand Northumbrian-an), and it appears to mean 'a person with large jowls attempting to be lovely), so I'm pretty sure that's not Cheerie...hmmm...
Oh well, thank you anyway! LOL. 
You're both so great on here! 
Love, 
Matthew.
