Uncover the Sun

Sunset Walk


Look, over there,

a pink orange surprise

above the dark outline

of trunk and branch hugging

the horizon


Sunsets, like every leaf ever made,

never look the same,

and the sky never gets bored in its

end-of-the-day palette

of Easter hues


Lately, colors have been heightened,

the crisp green of leaves, bold

contrast to the blushing rose

and white jasmine, whose fragrances

linger long after we pass by


The streets are poignantly empty,

even of car sounds,

and the ground shimmers

in the pale light, as if not quite

substantial any more


It is possible to breathe quietly

under such a sunset,

and let fear and worry dissolve

under the sky

like watercolors
