Evening slips away

The Sun goes orange

It’s yellow rays tarnished

Full day worth of light spent

Final beams trace shadows

They lie waiting for time

Crickets chirp pushing clock hands

Stars crawl over the horizon

Gentle cool breezes chase heat

The world sinks into quiet

Darting of bats provide motion now

A distant coyote cries out

His day begun in darkness

Slowly the moon rises high

As evening slips away
