When the night is born
Out of the last light
The day’s comings and goings
Are recycled by the mind
The words used and the silences
The doings and the neglects
All scrutinized by the heart
But abandon the judgment
Let go of the unforgiving criticism
Set your mind on a path to learning
Kindle the light of forgiveness in your heart
And let your soul dwell in the peace
Of the night just born.

Wise words my friend. ❤
Talking to myself here…happy you found something in it my friend ❤
Wonderful, Tiny. No need to conduct a post mortem on all our daily deeds and misdeeds.
That’s what I’m trying to tell myself here…tomorrow has fresh potential. Thanks for the confirmation Nancy!
Thanks Kathy! I’m glad it spoke to you.
Nice presentation. True to the fact.
Thank you! Happy you enjoyed it.
Did I forget that you are a wonderful poet? How can that be? A beautiful poem and I love the idea of recycling thoughts in the mind. Really brilliant. 🙂
Thanks Nomzi. I’m an occasional poet 🙂
Fabulous. Who knew. 🙂
Orphic is this Nightfall! Love the way, beautiful silence is masking the ugly noises……reading through the lovely poem
Happy you enjoyed the silence…and the poem.
Your words sink into my center and fill me on a day that clogs with snow and lack of sleep. Tuesday is Monday squared.
I hope you’ll get the sleep balance fixed up soon…the snow will melt on its own time table, but it shouldn’t be long now.
Peace is just what I need right now. 🙂
Happy my little poem spoke to you, Koko 🙂
Let it be…..:)
Amen to that!
Ah! Thank you…Thank you for this beautiful peace! Lovely ♡♡
You’re welcome Lorrie! Happy you enjoyed the peace.
voi miten kaunis runo hiljaiselle hetkelle, joka antaa pohjan seuraavalle…
Kiva että tykkäsit runosta!
Here I am, trying to find out what poet wrote that…and I realize, it was you! Nicely done. If that’s just your ‘thoughts written down’ then you definitely are thinking on a much more elevated frame of mind.
Yes:) Well done.
Thank you kindly, Elena.
Uplifting and so beautifully penned. Thank you!!
