“The Promise of Sunset”

I love the promise of a sunset –

everything bathed in golden promise.

It is:

A brilliant, gilded crown of benediction for the ended day

that whispers of glory to come at sunrise.

A flame of hope to last us through the night.

A glimpse of majesty to come.

A memory of blazing color to act as a talisman –

                holding our nightmares at bay,

                warming our sleeping hearts,

                reminding our ids that morning awaits on the next revolution.
