Poetic Thursday: When Evening Falls

It’s Thursday again and time for poetry. It’s always fun to join Pam and her boys at Two Spoiled Cats for Poetic Thursday each week.

Here’s the magical picture Pam provided us for this week’s inspiration:

And this is my poem:

When Evening Falls

Evening falls, and the park goes to sleep,
except for these beauties: they’ve a ritual to keep.

They travel in circles all through the day
amid smiling faces and children at play.

But when night comes, they run wild and free
to a secluded meadow lined with trees.

The moon and the stars their secrets share
in this place of which humans are unaware.

They’ll be back at the park before the dawn;
no one the wiser they were ever gone.

I first saw this picture a few years ago when my blogging friend, MJ (Emjay And Them), used it as the header photo on her blog. I’ve always thought it was fascinating, so it was fun writing a poem to make it ‘come to life’ this week.

  1. Great job Dianna……I have no idea it had been someone’s header – it’s actually a “screensaver” photo which I have been thinking might give me a change from Teddy’s photo as my saver. Anyway, it was a magical photo and you and I both had the same idea about the horses being free! Thanks for participating in our poetry challenge – it was especially fun this week.
