Day Song

Dusk settles me
In a round filament
Of light casting
Its last strands
Of motion
Through my
Window as
Birds sing the
Day song of evening –
Summer engulfs me
Framing this moment
In a triumvirate of life,
The light, sounds, and breeze
All a millenary of minutiae
Enshrouding the day in
Persian golds, details of love
Like a lapidary of time
Revealing the ornaments
Of my reverie in the earth
As comes my heart
Now comes my rest
