Evening Light

I love the light outside on clear autumn evenings, when everything has been washed clean by the rain.

The colours are enhanced by a golden glow,

Their shapes made clear and well defined.

Every flower, every leaf, every trunk and branch is perfectly itself.

Even the garbage bins and staircase bannister glow.

The greens are greener, the yellows yellower,

Their gradations of intensity more well-defined.

A red-brown shines out from the dark soil,

Which is usually a dull grey-brown.

The blue of the sky fits perfectly with the trees.

I don’t try to catch the clarity and perfection through the lens of a camera;

I have tried before and failed.

Nothing can reproduce those fleeting tones- except perhaps a great painter.


I just wrote this as the light fades outside my study window. I wish my words could capture it much better.
