At day's end

Setting Sun,

I know exactly what you mean.
Save your explanations and excuses.

Wherever it is you are gracing with that light,
that heat I know within, it is enough

to know the sun is shining somewhere.
Fare well.

Before the Darkness

I love how a candle glows in the darkness just after
it is blown out, it continues to glow,like the blood-
red memory of the sun through shut eyelids, a spot 
like an ember, in that liminal state between, teetering
until the wick takes its final gasp, brightening 
for a moment, soft firework, 
before exhaling, into black.
