sunset

how beautiful is this earth
how beautiful the light at sunset
how beautiful the sounds of the birds
as they find their way back for the night

how much love there is
in these ordinary dogs
who come to you for food
and having had their fill
lay down next to you
in trust and innocence

how beautiful is this earth
brown, dusty, giving home to all there is

how blessed this life
where even pain reveals
the glory of being alive

in this humid evening
in the light of sunset
all this, and more, is true
