The sun will set

May 2, 2012

Some days build like the whistle of a tea kettle, starting quiet and ending at a full-on shriek. But any day’s challenges will eventually boil over and away—it’s time’s guarantee.

The sun will set.

Even if hidden by clouds, the stars will emerge. Rest at the sight of those small beacons.

The sun will set.

When there are no wires, light candles. Let flame chase shadow so you don’t have to.

The sun will set.

As the quiet settles, invite it to stay. Cease conversation. Be still.

The sun, it will most definitely set.
