“Dying Splendor” (a zuihitsu attempt)

Laurenz Bobke

Sitting in the fading light of evening, with the song of cicadas accompanying the quiet music of our conversation, it is impossible not to touch, to stretch out one soft hand and drift my fingertips along your arm. There is a warmth in those moments, a song that only our souls can hear, a melody that does not falter even as the evening’s light wanes and leaves us in darkness. Emotion lingers, a permeating glow lighting our eyes despite the dying splendor.

This is my attempt at a zuihitsu (a prose poem with a focus on the impermanence of nature) as challenged by Kerry’s Wednesday Challenge – Running the Brush at With Real Toads, as well as using this weeks words (emotion, falter, touch) from Three-Word Wednesday.
