Dark Beauties

Dark Beauties


Delightful tree silhouettes

Framed by dusk-dimmed skies

Your verdant beauty turns to black

Before enchanted eyes

You don’t complain about the change

As nightfall draws near

You simply use the light that’s left

To make your silhouettes appear

–Russ Towne

About russtowne

I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.
