The colours fall to the horizon
Intense shades of red, orange and purple
A mystic fire has drawn along the sky
The birds go to roost, and the people sigh
A hard day’s work is done,
Gone is the sun
A deep blue bleeds into the sky
The mystic fire smoulders,
Until the light is no more.
The world is rooted in comfort and solitude
Yet a weariness lingers in the dark
The urge to be curled up inside
Overtakes the urge to explore the world beyond one’s home
It is time to rest, nightfall has come.
