Return to Sunsets

Won’t allow the sun to fade before it promises the dreams to break the shackles

Waiting to listen to more stories, inspiring, but still struggling to stay afloat

They decline to accept defeat, each heartbeat reminds the soul of unfinished stories

Hoping to view the unfiltered beauty of nature, experience the passionate expanse of life

Away from the influence of mechanical clocks, the schisms of a society, a sinking feeling

Sometimes they arrive in a rush, as if smoothening the rough edges of culture

Fallow orchards will be planted with healthy trees again, fruits of labor, pushing the sunset a little

Before the quieter season envelopes the landscape, allow a bite of the sweetest fruits

Plead with the sun, imagine the journey is beyond the sunset, will be a new beginning
