24 hours

Every sunset is beautiful.

Across the deserts and the plains,
along the treetops and sinking to the ocean.

From one end of the world to the other,
I can sit here and know someone else sees it too.

The shadow’s cast is a blanket until the streetlights hum to life,
and the grapefruit skies fade to birth twinkling stars.

Blue is a heavy color when it carries heaven’s weight.

I’ll see you tomorrow.

I’ll kiss you goodnight.

The sun will always set,
and it will always be beautiful.
