~Evening Beauty~

through the trees
and caressing

Gentle wind
and teasing
eager young leaves

tucking in for the night
juicy worms…
for babies

And the cat
with his bell
ambling along…
dreams of a soft
place to sleep
bringing him home

Delights of cooking
wafting on the breeze
awakens memories
of other times

Mother Nature slows
her pulse…
flora and fauna
follow Her example


Sweet dreams

About Icinia

Icinia McIntosh has been writing all of her life. One of her cherished childhood memories is the feeling of absolute joy derived from writing a story...not only the sheer pleasure of putting thoughts on paper, but the knowledge that her words would be read, and enjoyed, by others was intoxicating indeed. Today, Icinia writes mostly poetry, with the occasional foray into the realm of short stories. Icinia McIntosh was born and raised in Canada and still makes her home there.
