stony gravel paths

stony gravel paths

stony gravel paths
disappeared beneath my feet
unstable darkness
passageways through ink-washed trees
disguised by indigo night skies


By Lynda Lambert


Thank you, Naturewriting – or publishing this poem in October 2017..

Note: This short poem is inspired by walking my dogs at night. I like to stand in the darkness and survey the world of Nature that surrounds us,. Winter is the most majestic season for sky watching on a snowy night. Happy New Year. Enjoy the beauty that surrounds you, wherever you may be.
