Closing Poetry

Ebony Falls

by Emma Jennings

Then twilight came,
With sky crossed lines.
In wine glass readings,
we studied signs.

But man made shapes
Would fade to night,
An ebony fall
to focus sight,

Whilst those on steel birds
Might wake at dawn,
In another space,
On another lawn.

Would reflections in glass
Answer questions we sought?
We sipped the last sip
We tippled in thoughts.

The dog then barked,
Staring up at a nest.
T’was time to close eyes,
let profundity rest.

We’d blow out the flames,
We’d lock all the doors,
Left to question life’s quest
In our slumberful thoughts.
