Life and Death of a Day

It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream.

Bern Williams

Gallop you bastille steeds
Helios dreams without yoke
Guide your phantom chariot
freed through a sky of smoke


Zappai: evening matinee

bruised darkness descends
to quash the set performance
curtains call the end


Research shows that sunsets have many psychological effects that enhance the long-lasting satisfaction of life and physical benefits and have been proven to relieve stress.


Behind my eyelids
I survey the scene
A crimson light
Filters all I glean

The day lay still and cold
Blood splattered and spent
The day must die daily
Before the next is sent

Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens, every day can end beautifully.

Kristen Butler

lune: a beautiful end

as night imposes
lands leech black
life is in the sky


Monostich: a passionate farewell

The sky says goodbye with a love letter of Valentine red.
