Twilight

crepuscular rays

popular daze of blue streaks

musical light show

stellar stars steal the party

as pendulous pearl proceeds


This tanka depicts the twilight scene when crepuscular rays take control of the sky after the sun sets. Alongside the chirping music of birds and the dynamic shades of light rays, stars arrive stealing the show with the moon that appears as a pearl in an unseen pendulum.

    And one can forever watch this show. Beautiful imagery formed.
    The prompt is ‘Twilight’, you mistakenly wrote ‘Mingle’ I guess.
