Sunlight squints across the horizon,
Leaving trails of pink and orange as it fades.
The sky exchanges her daytime robes of azure
For her alluring indigo night attire.
As crickets chirp and mosquitos buzz,
A whole new world emerges.
Night creatures begin to appear
As humans tire and begin to relax.
The children's excited shouts are silenced
While sleep carries them to morning.
What's done is done; what's said is said.
Today has been lived, and tomorrow is a new day.
