day ends with light 

that permeates the sky

as if echoing through 

the calmed storm clouds

there is a rooftop 

that shimmers 

with the golden pink glow

of the setting sun

and a palm tree standing 

as its fronds flutter in the gentle breeze

farther off we hear people shouting

speaking forcefully 

with bold lettered signs advertising doom

the traffic hum lulls 

as the walkers step to an uneven beat

this radiating light covers it all

and has seen all like this — more and less

but this moment is only small 

and changes 

and is gone before 

we know it has finished
