Let Twilight Come…

Let twilight come.
Let it settle, now,
gently over our shoulders
and between the pines.
Let it slide down
softly, now
flowing around fingers
entwined between our chairs.
Let it brush the backs of dragonflies
that swoop and hunt
so fierce
so fragile
above our heads.
Let it set the stage, now
for fireflies
and let me pin it
here
to the corner of your slow, sweet smile
with a kiss.

K.M. B. (aka Green Girl)
Awhile back, I said I would post my best friend’s (award winning) poem once I had permission. I got permission but lost the poem.  I just found it again.  So here it is.  My friend is shy, so I haven’t used her real name.  Around these parts, she is known as GG or Green Girl.  I’m not sure why she’s so shy.  If I wrote poetry this good I’d be plastering my name all over it.  Then again, that’s always been the difference between us and, maybe, why we work. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
