A sunset, sinks into the horizon, ready to say goodbye, but not before its graceful glory danced. It was a beautiful sight. Every human, animal and plant in the world knew it would soon be replaced by a different kind of sun. Giving brightness, in their own way.

Buds folded into each other, their petals clasped together, as if in prayer. Animals closed their eyes, ready for the night’s rest. Humans watched, as the red sky swept across the clouds.

Good night, shepherd’s delight.

It would return in the morning, well rested, to give another day the chance to shine.
