When daylight rests

The Fall of Night

One by one the lights go off

Slowly burning to black

The kitchen stove, red with heat

Stills to a cool whisper

Before the daylight finishes

It charms us one last time

Oranges and plums twist into midnight

The birds stop chirping

The birds stop chirping, Their chatter sways to silence as the moon takes its place

Kids close their eyes

Leaving another day's mysteries unlocked

Phones on top of couches quit buzzing

Cars' beaming headlights become fewer

And fewer

Life becomes a flickering candle

Just blown out
