Twilight/ Day 22

Since today is Earth Day, our daily prompt suggested we come up with a nature-related poem of any kind. Well, I’m not very good at this sort of thing, since I don’t often write poems with ‘nature’ in mind, but I gave it a try nevertheless. (At least I’ve kept on writing, and that’s the ultimate goal, right?)

Twilight, mounted on a column
Of leaves, unsheathed by the rigid fingers
Of the forest, you are the dream-weaver,
All tousled pastels and lingering breezes.
I wish I were an alchemist of silences,
I wish I could bottle you and keep you
Safely locked away in my ribcage,
Where you would feed on secrets and other
Finely brewed dangers. I wish I were
A shadow-master, to bottle you up.
