Stillness found

The peace of dusk
falling upon the weary soul
holds tight the belief
a new day will rise.
We linger in the embrace
of rippled colors found
in skies of fall
the blessing of beauty savored
like the sweetest wine
beyond the vine.
Where do we gather
beneath the stars that find us
gazing into the setting sun
shining bright for a solitary minute
before slipping away from view,
becoming a memory carried
into the days of our lives
of a yesterday gone
and yet still remembered
as if we are in that place
this very second,
we smile with a softness in our heart
of too many to count,
these times we recall
of peace in the stillness found.
