Evening Sky


EndNovember10 200








I watch footprints

dissipate in quiet,

low-tide ripples.


Sporadic sparklings

speckled in sea foam

bedazzle memories.


My face,


to the heavens,

leans on beams of

brighter light.



images spread

north, south,

east, west



a portrait


a most



evening sky.


  1. Jan,

    I like everything about this, most especially the effect is has over heart, mind and soul.
    One of my favorite words in the universe is ‘gentle’, and that’s what this poem is, and
    that’s how it makes me feel. I know you are also a photographer. Is the photograph
    your work too? It makes me want to kick off my shoes and walk in the sand…just
    close enough to the surf that it splashes my legs. Thank you for the pleasure of this
    peaceful interlude.

    • I’m glad you like this writing and see it as ‘gentle’. Low tide at the beach is calming. Yes, the photography that you see with my writing is my work.

  2. Hi Jan

    Love the photo and the poem!! Both are beautifully done and work so well in unison. I can relate to the quiet peace the evening sky brings along the shoreline; and I love the way you connect in these lines

    My face,


    to the heavens,

    leans on beams of

    brighter light.

    Not only the image but the rhythmic sound to this echoes with beauty and a spiritual intensity. Thank you for sharing this one!

    Love it!
