NaPoWriMo #5

Yeah, I know I’ve missed some days.  Oh well!  I’m here today.


The sun set today.
It normally does.
But today I watched.
Watched that golden orb
drop below the horizon,
like a gilded spider slipping
behind the lip of a green bowl.
The air grew chilled,
and the dogs whined,
but I watched watery white
meld into pale rose yellow
fade into powder blue
deepen into varied shades of indigo,
like water going from shallow to deep.
I listened to animals going to bed,
and to animals waking up.
For the briefest moment,
I stepped outside of the world,
a silent observer, swaying,
on the edge of the profound.
