Sunset Bringing Life

Lush and leafy trees erect

Sway to the music of a fading day

Crickets one and all come out

And tune their violins to play.


Colors fade from a purpling sky

And the stars reveal their splendor bright.

Below, the earth sinks to gentler tones

Letting out their inner light.


A respite gained from chaos of day

Comes to all the nonhuman life in their turn.

And as an onlooker, so do I receive

For the tune of the night a chance to learn.


I take my leave and let it go,

The creatures and plants don't miss me though.

My absence doesn't make a hole

But completes a life I'll never know.
