The light for evening eyes

I see you in the light for evening eyes
when daylight’s done and candles shine near you.
The sharpness of the day that wants no lies
is gone, now rules another sort of  true.
I hear you speaking lower than in day
as if the dark outside has urged you to
be quiet for the danger that well may
be threatening our splendid  time for two.
Those  evenings spent with you in gentle pace
is all I need to make me leave the day
with nothing needed, and nothing to do
just watching you, your eyes, your evening face
while light is fading,  no more words to say.


 I made this photo this afternoon standing on the dune behind our home. The ferry that left Harlingen at 3 pm, is about to enter port. If you click on the image, it gets sharper. More photo’s on facebook.

  1. Not sure: is it Those evenings “spent” or “spend”? I appreciate it if someone tells me. I could not find it anywhere myself.

  2. Lovely words, lovely photo.

  3. Hi J thank you very much.
    The photo looses a bit of sharpness here on wp and I have to do something about the horizon, but I still like the image too. 🙂

  4. What a beautiful love poem.

    And picture
    And place to live

    I will be along on FB later to look at more photos 🙂



    • Hi David, thank you very much.

      It started as a sonnet, but then I got carried away and no idea what it is now 🙂

      I like making pictures, not to sure I like downloading them and such lol it took me quite a while to get them all from the camera on the laptop!



  5. A beautiful enjoyable love poem
    The picture brings the imagery alive
    Ian aka Emu

    • Hi Ian 🙂

      Thank you very much! It was the image that made me think of evening light, and it was a picture on FB (of Belfast David’s) that made me want to make a sunset too 🙂

    Prachtig gedicht en foto! De eilanden en de waddenzee hebben hun eigen betovering.

    • Hoi Francina, dank je wel. Ja, het is niet zo moeilijk om hier iets te vinden om vast te leggen! 🙂 Jij ook de groetjes!

  7. I am gone for a bit, to a funeral in Belgium, won’t be back till Tuesday. I hope everyone will enjoy reading this blog 🙂

  8. This is as wonderful a place to be, Ina, as is possible. The photograph is wonderful. The poem is so peaceful and wonderful I feel like breaking out into song. This is really, really nice.

    • Hi Thomas, thank you very much! I think I like a poem with this kind of rhyme every now and then. 🙂

    Hallo Ina,

    I have nominated you for the One lovely Blog Award!
    Please go to the link to claim the award.

    groetjes, Francina

    • Hoi Francina, dank je wel, dat is erg aardig. Ik loop nog drie awards achter om op te reageren, maar het wordt vast snel wat rustiger en dan ga ik er eens goed voor zitten! 🙂

      Groetjes Ina

  10. This reflective poem is so calming…like a meditation on the end of the day, when all the ‘noise’ and busyness has stilled. Beautiful. Safe travels and again, sincere condolences.

    • Hi bardess, thank you very much. 🙂 It was a sort of quiet mood I wrote it in.
      The journey went fine, thank you again for your condolences.

  11. This is a beautiful poem for me to come back to Ina – thank you!

    Love and hugs

    PS Hope the funeral went as well as it could have done. xx

    • Hi Christine! Good to see you are seeing 🙂
      Thank you very much!
      The funeral (cremation actually) went well, there was a Catholic mass, with lovely rituals and it was good to meet everyone there 🙂

      Love and hugs to you too!

  12. PS – You are doing well with your camera!!! 🙂 xx

  13. Ina, thanks for sharing the poem and I could catch the mood of the evening in your lines. I note that you are in Terschelling.
    Thanks for your visit and likes. I wrote one this morning. Did it snow in your place?

    • Hi benny, thank you very much. Yes we are having a lot of snow at the moment. 🙂
      I liked your poem very much! 🙂

      Your link doesn’t seem to work so I am not sure I can find your weblog back, maybe if you happen to read this, could you give me the right link? Thank you!
