The following poem was written by my 14-year-old daughter.
The inspiration came from the night sky on an early spring evening at dusk.
I snapped some photos to share with you what she saw.
I hope you enjoy it!
A Landscape Silhouette
by Alyssa Deen
The sun descends, the moon rises
The light is not fully gone yet
The mountains outline the horizon
Into a landscape silhouette.
The animals of the night
Come out to start their day
They've work to do, just like us
And the young go out to play.
Upon us falls a new kind of darkness
A dark of peaceful bliss
Sit back, relax, it's time to sleep
Nothing compares to this.
Eyes are closing slowly now
Dreams seep into your resting mind
Subconscious imagination takes over
Day's worries are left behind
Light slowly breaks through again
The sun & moon perform a pirouette
I see now the outlined horizon
And the landscape's silhouette.
