I believe this may be the first free verse you've posted on here? It's so calming, which is how I view twilight. I felt that sense of nostalgia, as you mentioned, and that peace of mind found in nature, in the quiet moments when one is not busy with the day's tasks. I rarely see the word "indigo" in texts, and I've always found it rich and poetic, so I loved seeing that here as it brought a sort of depth to it. "freckled with faraway stars" was one of my favorite lines, and I don't really have any critiques or criticisms to strengthen this poem. The length felt perfect, and even that simple "farewell", gave me a feeling of comfort at the end of the day, knowing there will be a fresh start tomorrow, but able to contentedly watch the still lit sky.
Curious to know if you prefer forms or free verse, or if you don't mind either? I know it can be about what feels more natural to the poet, or what they've had more practice with. This was such a nice surprise to read!
MA says it all here. I knew you had a free verse in the works, but I had no idea of the quality. I only say that because I know you hadn't really experimented with them. On this evidence, you should write more of them!
This paints such a pretty picture which you have described beautifully, where, not even a photo could capture the same awe as your words! Well done and I'm glad to see it nominated. I agree with all the previous comments and hope we see more of this type of style from you. The sky's the limit with your talent :)
