I saw the end approaching,
it happens all the time;
One thing ending,
with no warning or big boom
just a collection of subtleties coming together.
But we hadn’t seen an ending like this
since the early days.
So I hiked to the top of the mountain
in the dark of the endless night
expecting to say goodbye to everything I once knew.
I looked down at the village as it cradled the moon in its shadow,
preserving the last of the light we would ever see.
I waited up there for what we would have called days,
if night hadn’t blanketed the village for weeks.
They said the sun was gone for good
and it would never rise again.
No longer did we call these the early days
but the end of days.
But then sure enough, there it was,
the sun approaching,
and now it happens all the time.
