Clouds sketched pink in

a fading sky—

Pink like cotton candy will

be refined into golden pools

whose everglow embers are

whispered to rest

in a deeper, darker


A world watches

without regret

as a melting sun

returns into foreverness.

It will rise again.

The same yesterday and in

forever days to come—

an Earth can explain

as it rotates.

Another son has risen.

A world in darkness

cannot understand.

But they will

feel the warmth that beams

from a source of love

so bright.

And O what peace

their world will know

if they turn their hearts to

His light.
