Cadence Humble Resolve for 3WW

The Cadence of 5pm

The garish sun
is humbled by the mountains.
The pace
of day
slows to
an Enya tune.
I resolve to relax
into the lavender
fleece of evening.

A friend of mine called 5pm 'arsenic hour' (our children were young). It's different when you want to relax after a day's work. I like the idea of slowing down to an Enya tune.

soothing words and having know some of Enya's music, it's a very relaxing, calming piece

This is fabulous. I like so many things about this short piece. My favorite: "The pace of day slows to an Enya tune."

I llike it. It so true about slowing down to Enya. Her words and music just seem to relax the soul.
