Poetry: The Foreshadowing of Yesterday

In, “Poetry: The Foreshadowing of Yesterday,” the shifting of time, the movement from light to dark, the exchange of color.

Of, Poetry: The Foreshadowing of Yesterday,” often, I gain such an appreciation of how infinite and small we are when I watch the evening shadows and the sun saying its goodbyes. Then the clarity of each and every little star that brings such brilliance of light to the night sky. I try to stop, and take time to enjoy the beauty of our world, even if its just standing from my deck of my apartment.

Poetry: The Foreshadowing of Yesterday

At 6:17 pm, from my apartment deck,

the shadows became known,

stretching their long fingers

across the small icy cold lake,

the funnel-shaped would only,

come when the sun would surrender its light.

It bows out gracefully behind the mountains.

The lake gave in willingly too,

secrets it held from opaque objects, knowing

that incandescent stars of the night would again

scatter stardust soon and ward off

yesterday’s lengthy foreshadowing.
