TRANSITIONS

Dusk is that hour
when the mind and eyes
mark the slow transition
from light to dark.
As day slides off,
things that were obvious,
things that once were simple,
grow in complexity
until the intricacy
threatens to overwhelm you.
When night fully settles,
sanity returns grudgingly
and the memory of dusk
is but a pebble nestling
the bottom of the pond.
