Sunrise in summer: a parting aubade

Sunrise in summer – a farewell

a parting aubade
in the indigo pre-dawn,
together we wait

birds chime a warning
the sun is coming, with it,
time to say goodbye

the butcher bird calls
orange fills the horizon
a last parting kiss

light slowly gathers
seeming anti-climatic
night gives way to day

in the clouds a glimmer
of the night fading away
of the sun rising

Clouds shimmer in sun
orange and purple and bright—
my wondrous night done
