Twilight, When the World is at its Sweetest

The highlight of my summer season so far has been the long twilight.  The days might be feisty and unrelenting, but then twilight eases in, echoing with childhood summers in which dusk marked the coda to days of running, throwing balls, imagining, exploring woods, frolicking with neighborhood kids;  high school beach bonfires, riding my bike home after solo expeditions with a stack of library books bungee-corded to the back.  Twilight, when the world is at its sweetest and most dignified.  Voices soften, buildings and trees stand taller, dreams begin to stir, and monsters remain in hiding.

This post is in response to today’s writing prompt:  If it’s autumn or winter where you live, what are you most looking forward to doing next summer? If it’s spring or summer where you are, what has been the highlight of the season so far for you?

  1. Really love descriptions in this! I could visualize everything you were describing. And even though I don’t care for summer in the slightest, the twilight hours can be quite lovely.
