Under the East by Gabriel

Look to the west as the sun is tucked away,

Blanketed in its last sighs of sunshine

And a tuft of feathery cirrus wisp.

Can you feel it?

Listen closely, once the birds have perched,

And the wind is all but a mild whisper,

Lulling the trees and grassy seas to a slumber.

Can you hear it?

The night draws nearer.

Look closely, once the sun has gone

And only its somber embers remain.

Watch, as its straggling streaks grow dimmer –

As the dying veins lose their pulse.

Watch, as the water loses the twilight shimmer –

As the night’s curtain falls and comes to an ease.

Can you see it?

A new day looms under the east.
