Winter evening sky burns at the horizon
as day falls into night.

Eyes follow the black outlines
of branches reaching toward heaven

through the layered hues and scattered clouds
until they stop at the single white point.

I have seen you each night
from the cement patio as

the city quiets and the distant
trains come to a stop.

I have seen you each night
when sleep finally takes hold.

What more can I ask for,
what more can I expect,

than the colors of autumn
calming the chaos within.

As the sun sets on another day
and the weight of each person’s
burden, responsibilities, and
hopelessness reach a tipping point

there is the outside view
into the mind of each tree
into the soul of nature
into the womb of the universe.

Putting aside differences,
opinions, and our views of
the outside from the inside,
whoever or whatever designed and created
this, is pretty awesome.

For a moment in time
I saw the future
as I quickly let go
o the past.

In the moment I
saw the beginning.

Of each moment I
held on as long as possible.

I did not know how much
time I had left.

I do not know where
I am going from here.

Fading light
Fading light
Fire is coming
Fire is coming
