Sunset This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

The day reaches its winter,
its last minutes
in the sky. It hovers
as if to forestall the
inevitable.

The darkness, a
lethal opponent, reaches
to choke day. A struggle ensues,
sky burning blood red
with the last of day’s
endurance.

With a lingering gasp,
the day sinks into oblivion
and dies.
