SUNSET

Written by: SILENCE ZVARAYA

The  climbing   earth  meets  the  alighting  sky ,
Trying  tirelessly  to  douse  its  ball  of  fire ,
But  only  dims  it ,
As  it   shrivels  with  a  secretive   queer  whisper ,
only  heard ,
and  known  by  tens  of  trailing  nomadic  birds .
It  is  their  calling  to   their  destiny ,
embedded  in  the  horizon .
They   shall  fade  together  in  alfresco .
But  for  the  eyes  of  many ,
it  is  a  flower ,
denuded  of  its  petals .
But  not  forever ;
Tomorrow like   a bud it shall blossom.
