Sunset – Anna G Stone

End of day
I stand on
the balcony.
Birds twittering,
crooning their
own sweet
lullabyes.
Clouds are throned
with crowns of glory –
Golden as the
setting sun.
I look out
over the valley,
watching as the
colours yield their
brightness,
almost melding and
merging into the
gathering dark.
There is a
peacefulness that
settles on the
sleepy landscape.
Venus, that brightest
of stars heralds
the arrival of
the galaxy beyond.
Sun has gone
to bed – Now
is the moon’s
time to shine.
I take a deep breath –
So this is Life.
