DEPARTURE

It is that magical
hour of the day
when the sun sets
the pond’s surface ablaze.
The fountain in the middle
shoots drops of liquid fire
into to sky, only
to watch them return
to their now fiery home.
This magic only lasts
a few moments before
the water returns
to its natural state,
and for yet another day,
extinguishes the sun.
