Evenings, staring at the sky, routinely
Walking the length of the terrace
Craning the neck sideways, upward
Skyward, taking in this offering
Of scattering colors and restless forms
Breaking and forming, like in our lives
As stories starting and concluding.
A whole day marked with opportunities
Has flown and floats another evening
And there starts the twitching, inside
The very insides of the heart, asking
Staying true to the course or failing
Whereas I wanting to embrace, this
Beautiful breeze, soothing and questioning,
Descend from this darkening dusk to
The welcoming closing-in of the night.
