Only to return.

A sunset tells us what we are and where we should head to.

It’s a spiritual guide powered by Mother Nature

and one that we should never neglect —

Honor this priceless natural treasure

concealed in night shadows.”

Primrose: Love’s Sprite

by Stephen Parker

Love blossomed in the darkest night
Morn’s gilding beams to spite
Night Primrose preened by tender blight
As Sphinx Moth, soft tips caress; sugary nectar slight
Perfumed aroma doth prating, intoxicated courtier incite
Glazed petals with dewy fans stream delight
Golden cup a succouring armchair from which passions alight 
Delicate, cream veil eclipses pallid, stolid moonlight
With availing breeze your dreamy parasol on Cupid’s wing takes flight

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language

And next year’s words await another voice.
