Lamplight by Paul Niemiec

” Lamplight “

 

“As evening approaches, the luminous glow of a late August afternoon floats into the half-light of dusk.

 

Warm air is cooled by the flow of wet breezes from offshore, casting a dew over the grasses.

 

An oil lamp gradually¬† transmits it’s energy, casting long beams of light over open waters until dawn.

 

After the day’s blush has long gone, far-off lights glimmer as if from a Christmas tree, flickering with the night air.

 

Overhead, a blanket of crisp white stars tucks the island in to sleep, until morning light heralds the cycle again.”
