February Twilight Poem

February Twilight

In the hush of winter's evening,
Where the sky blushes at the night,
February's twilight, softly weaving
Threads of darkness with last light.

Bare branches etch the fading blue,
A silent symphony in gray,
Each silhouette a clue
To the secrets of the day.

Stars, like shy reflections, start to peer
Through the canopy of dusk,
Each a silent seer,
In the night's encroaching husk.

The chill air, a gentle thief,
Steals the warmth from within,
As nature holds its breath, brief,
In the pause between what's been.

Underneath the moon's silver gaze,
A world in transition lies,
Balancing between the phases,
Under February's twilight skies.
