an orb aglow


Even as day
Dips curtseys
And sun loses bite
It cuts a beautiful arc
Trajectory in final
Throes of light

Blood orange
Hues gently caress
Doorways, windows
Eaves, sills, cornices
Bringing blasé
Drabness to life

Returning to roost post
Delightful rendezvous
Energy and verve
On downward curve
Spirit’s pennant defiant
Tired body beaten pliant

Sight of setting sun
In its bold and rich
Multi stroked glory
Gladdens heart as I
Behold it’s edifying
Touch ups, then some

Hope flares rekindled
Strengthening resolve
Once again I psyche
Self saying “you can do
It, reclaim good health
It’s going to be alright”
