La Concha, Night-Time
I find you in the quiet, amid the nightbloom’s enpurpled hue
Where soft tropic night permeates longing heart
Our eyes meet and hold, simmering in darkened radiance
The sea warmed air murmuring melodies to sweet future
I find you in the slow, in midnight tinged with humid stillness
In time’s smooth trickle, where twilight rests her head on my shoulder
Where music of the shrouded world fades into focus from the gloom
Between tree-shadow and lantern’s pull, we softly blend together
I find you in the murk, where fallen sky mingles with surface
Baylight synapses twinkling, shimmering on slow tides
Where waning moon’s glow fights against dusk’s might
Sweet nights burning together // whispered conversations of hope

"La Concha, Nighttime" by Landen Parkin, is a lovely companion piece to the artwork, and a lovely poem in and of itself. Congratulations, Landen
