Closing Time

The fall begins
a time of day
that twilight time
sublime
with lavender hues.
The curtain collects
thoughts of a day.
Sky darkens gray,
slowly
ever slowly closing,
and the darkness 
becomes a pitch
of navy blue
with an intense hue
close to a blackness
before a twinkling appears
and this fall of the day
is complete.
