Mountain Twilight

By : William Renton

The hills slipped over each on each
Till all their changing shadows died.
Now in the open skyward reach
The lights grow solemn side by side.
While of these hills the westermost
Rears high his majesty of coast
In shifting waste of dim-blue brine
And fading olive hyaline;

Mountain Light 1.

Till all the distance overflows,
The green in watchet and the blue
In purple. Now they fuse and close –
A darkling violet, fringed anew
With light that on the mountains soar,
A dusky flame on tranquil shores;
kindling the summits as they grow
In audience to the skies that call,
Ineffable in rest and all
The pathos of the afterglow.

  2. I am playing catch up with teading. Mom fell and broke her hip 3 weeks ago but a joyful event with new grandbaby 4 weeks ago really balances the emotions.
    Nigel, I love your golden Twilight photos. Xo

  3. This is lovely in words and photographs, Nigel. You add layers of texture with your beautiful choices of words. I liked “A dusky flame on tranquil shores.”
