Saving Grace

Slowly dusk descended
and it got really hard to see
but the birdsong in the evening sky
was great for Sal and me

And though we’ve said it here before
we really love this place
and though a broken record-like
it is our saving grace

Without it I am quite convinced
stir-crazy we would be
so it’s a special privilege
this field to weekly see

And when we left this evening
night had bled into the day
which made it kind of special
in a really lovely way

    Your poem reminds me of finding a special “go to” place in nature. Its saving grace nourishes the soul with each visit.
