darkening garden --
sunset picks all colors
from the flowers

August twilight --
one wildflower dying
on another one in bloom

Ion Codrescu

autumn dusk
the doe looks back at the deer
in headlights

Dustin Neal
evening rain
the deaf dog sleeps
with a paw on my foot

Allen McGill

insomnia --
a receding train whistle
lengthens the night
