Our unlikely friendship

Sun sets at La Jolla Shores. Nov 14, 2014.

Each farewell different
the aching darkness stretches
and cowers as Gaia hurtles through
crushing void
seasons turn, reign, die, go back
into the queue

What is a sunburn, but
affirmation that we are alive
due to our unlikely friendship
with an enormous, raging
orb

its inner chaos giving rise
to spring daffodils and year-round
humanity
