The light now brilliant above the trees
The green array below darkened
The air is gently cool and still
Each branch, each leaf before me is motionless
Sweeps of deep pink embrace the golden sun
As each moment now unfolds
The light of this day quickens to its rest
Laced in brilliant golden crimson
The light bids this day to its close
Gone is the green
Each leaf, each branch
A blackened silhouette
In grace against the darkened sky
The sound of crickets hold present this day
The caress of the night air
The colors sweeping abide to the closing hour
Skyward I am bound
Brush stokes of color call to the canvas
And I in the embrace of this Presence.
