River Sunset

Funny how just before the world
goes dark
it slowly fades into the most beautiful array of colors.
Oranges, blues, pinks,
purples, reds, yellows
The sky is ablaze
A watercolor painting drawing my eyes
Stirring my heart
Making me dream
A symphony of color dancing
before the darkness comes
I think that’s how life works.
Like a sunset.
Our lives
beautiful flashes of brilliant colors
and then darkness overwhelms
Plunging us into pools of black
But wait
Within those pools are tiny, shining lights
and after
just when things seem darkest
The colors fade in
And the sun rises again
in all of its radiance
