At the eve (revisited)

by Jem Croucher

3 of 10 in the Jemverse series ‘Summer 21’

At the eve of this day

I will lie back in lavender

And there will be evening sunshine

And a deep breath of contentment

And I will smile

At the eve of this day

I will think like a rainbow

And there will be colours of summer

And the soothing comfort of a captured smile

And I will sing


At the eve of this day

I will settle to the embers of a woodland fire

And there will be woodsmoke

And the humid scent of perfume in the air

And I will feel


At the eve of this day

I will embrace all of this pleasure

And there will be flotsam on the breeze

And a dream like solitude where all is well

And I will be
