Another gray-white day ebbs quietly away.
As if by habit, the streetlights blink on,
Softening the hard edges of the coming dark.
Along the crests of the distant western hills,
The clouds ride low and sullen in the sky.
Then suddenly they part to reveal the sun,
Blazing in scarlet and orange against
The pale, dull backdrop of the fading day.
And as the sunset colors die away,
The neon glows and flows and blooms,
Like flowers along the path of Night.
