Some Sunset Somewhere

My body aches
And the sound of voices from so long ago echoes in my ears
Smiles no longer bearing faces
Faces no longer bearing smiles

At times
I want to crumble
To fall back to the earth and in time be swept away by a passing breeze
Each and every cell and molecule dispersed from one another
To be lifted into the sky that they might at least be a part of some sunset somewhere

But I know
That this will pass
With time
Just as each day ends
With a sunset

    1. Some of the most beautiful sunsets I have seen are the result of large quantities of airborne particles, often smog or other pollution, filtering light just at the horizon. There are many times where I am able to relate, where I feel like some of my most poignant memories are like clouds of dust from my past through which the light filters and illuminates.

    1. Thank you, Adi. I am well, most days. I struggle at times, but in the end, I am able to find myself and see beauty. It has been a long year, and I have much to reflect on and process, both good and bad.

      How are you? I do hope you are also well.
