Thoughts at Sunset

Rum Dusk by Belinda A Pearce



Fantasy flies out on the setting sun
As senses sigh on love that lies undone
A meant to be that was not destiny
Replaced by solo dancing ‘neath the moon
While stars fade out across the darkened sea
The unseen tears that weep throughout the night
Are now cast down, defined by cosmic lore
In sad love songs that float upon moonlight
As empty eyes have no need to explore
The solitary footprints on the shore
For they already know where they begun
Where early morning rays came into sight
And the rolling days of eternity
The soliloquy of a loveless tune

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
