Day and AgeEach day
as the sun departs
and the street lamps awaken
An entire spectrum of color
warms the darkening Earth
as the eternal blaze slips away
I see a Day and Age
written across the sky
in every shade of evening
Our hearts lie in the orange glow
our fears in the deepening blues
And the glittering stars hold our lonliness, refusing to let go.
Why the sky reflects our true self, I do not know-
But its divine vastness surrounds every creature
uniting us all under its universal blanket of fear and love.
