A Poem: Sunset

A Poem: Sunset

There is that quiet pause,
that moment when darkness
presents itself to us.
The earth lays out her
starry blanket,
allowing the night to
claim the day.

The pause flitters away
leaving behind the
twittering songs of insects.
Erie eyes, a glow with
the moons pale light
make their way across
the darkened land.

So, as we tuck ourselves
away into our beds…
some warm..
some cold..
we ought to know,
life goes on after sunset.

  1. The irony is: I wasn’t sure I liked how this one came out, which is one of the reasons I held it back until now.

    I am glad people like it!
