Calmly sets the sun,
despite these unsettling times—
a bright horizon.

As the setting sun,
hanging on as the world fades,
life—work in progress.

refuses to fuse.

Process is progress

Summer to autumn—
transition is natural,
just as human life.

Change is a constant;
orange becomes the normal,
and worry, a friend.
