Sunsets meant something once…

It’s silly – just light and time and atmosphere blending

into a pink-orange filter that transforms the world,

slowing busy minds and lives to distraction, but

they seem fewer and fewer lately and I wonder if

my climate has changed or even light, time, or atmosphere

has irreversibly ended sights to behold and stop

my hurried mind that once called together loves

to see what can only be seen once a day if at all.
