Just being mortal

Just being mortal
Know that the end is nearing for all of us
Yet still having regrets and longings
After we’re gone there’s still love
Floating through the branches
And appearing through the drops of rain
Peering from a bloom of a sunflower
Like Clytie tracking Apollo and seeking his sister Artemis, the moon
Night brings Lanterns
Of fireflies and tweeting bats
Looking for mates and insects
Night also brings solace
For you and me
Morning comes slowly
Vivid hues breaking through the cracking sky
Hoping for illuminations
of our dreams
