Harvest Evening

October 7, 2016

There is a peace tonight
coloured with pink
as the sun slides away

the colours slipping after her
falling into another day
beyond our horizon

and we are left
with silver starlight
humming silent songs

creation’s nighttime glory
of a billion suns glowing
further than the eye can see

the trees bow slightly
and a hush spreads across the hills
it has been a celebration day

as harvest always is

yet over that horizon
the colours change
as they light up another day

across fields not so full
and the promise of hunger
wakes the day

of flooded land
and rivers dying
and desert creeping

too soon the harvest
has failed to be shared
and a silence falls

creation’s own prayer
waiting to be heard
