Brilliance flooded the darkness,
effulgence spread far and wide,
light letting loose its golden tress,
the mysterious hues lay untied.
In majestic glory untainted still,
with a vigour ere unseen,
as darkness slowly unleashed its will,
the light dulled in sheen.
Steadily as the hues did merge,
what wish but wish for it to last?
Slowly as the darkness surged,
the Sun had set at last.
A feeling undefinable,
a power so extreme,
and yet so calm – so stable,
the scene was like a dream.
The setting Sun in final zest,
spread cheer far and wide,
reminding all that life does have crests,
as it merged into the infinite tide…
