Chiaroscuro This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

The gloaming air surrounds us in your front yard,
        we gaze into the fire, the warmth beating onto our feet.
Our voices joining the choir of crickets, you said to me,
“Why can’t we stay like this forever?”
“I wish we could,” I whispered.
The soft grass weaving around our feet,
Our gentle breathing,
  and the pops of the fire breaking our peaceful silence. 
Sparks rising into stars,
creating a masterpiece just for us.
