in the last light of day, October 2012, 6:32 p.m.

In last lightthe last light of day
On my tree-lined street
The leaves are changing color
The breeze is stirring them mysteriously
And everything looks a little brighter
Even as it fades away.
Like the last few sips of wine in the bottle
Or the last 30 seconds of a song
When you know it’s going to end soon
But it is still rocking and you are loving it
And its glorious sound fills you up
But you feel a little twinge of sadness
Because you know it’s almost over.
So it is with this day
So lately just begun
With limitless blue sky
And brightest warm sun
Like anything was possible.
Now come the clouds to the west
And the sun sinks lower
And the light begins to fade;
But still here, just a bit longer
The glory of this day
Fills me up with slightly sad sweetness
Just before the song ends.
