Together

Together

In its final burst
of energy
the setting sun
leaves the day
with its
warmth
and glow
Taking nothing
from us
other than the
memories
it championed

With its flickering
light slipping slowly
below the horizon
the remains
of the day
gently turn
to night
A sense
of oneness
with the universe
A flicker of hope
for a better tomorrow

    Taking nothing other than the memories it championed. . . . What a great point of view as the memories are all made in the sun’s light. That is a #PerfectLine
