‘in the half-light of dusk’

“…in the half-light of dusk…before the night has plunged
things back into themselves there is a settlement in which
the external and the internal are continuous with the evening air
if you are alone at the edge of shadows you are not alone
the hours of light shine in you with a compacted energy that
also burns in tree and stone partly revealed and partly veiled..”
