This is my first time ever writing without a very structured, rhyming pattern. I just thought I'd give writing free verse a shot, and this was the result. Please let me know what you think and be sure to let me know if you've got any suggestions for improvement in the future. Thanks!
The day is drawing to an end.
The sun has lazily drifted below the horizon.
The moon has taken its throne,
Ready for its reign in the sky.
The night is soft and dark overhead,
Punctuated by the beaming stars.
They wink down clumsily at you,
Bathing you in their muted light.
With the proud moon above
And the tickling grass below,
And the sound of silence that covers it all,
You are perfectly calm.
Your heart beats in a peaceful,
Strong, steady rhythm.
Your eyes are shut,
Though you are not blind
To the magnificence all around you.
There is no one near,
And no sounds break the seal of quiet
That binds this scene.
But you are not alone.
Every star in the heavens is with you.
Every shade of deep blue
In the night sky is your companion.
Every blade of grass
That rustles in the breeze,
Every wink and sparkle of the happy moon,
Every second filled
With that comfortable silence:
These things are with you now.
They are by your side,
Bonding together in solidarity.
Though you are by yourself,
You are not alone in the slightest.
I'm sorry I can't give you any suggestions on how to improve it. One, because the only thing I know about poems is how to read them and if I like them or not. Two, because I like this one, and I don't see anything wrong with it. At all. Honestly, I think it is really really good! While reading it I kind of imagined the setting around me to a prefect calmness and it made me feel really nice. And considering I was listening to loud rock music while reading it, I think you made a fairly good job. :)
