A Short Day

I saw today’s beginning.
The sky was golden.
The clouds revealed a mystic glow.

I was very busy as the day progressed.
I attended to the cares of the world.
My mind was full of foolishness.
The words I spoke made no sense.

Night is close at hand.
I am returned to the morning.
I look for its beauty again.
I see the sky’s evening glory.
The moon is coming soon.
