Failing

Beginning of dusk, November, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


finale
the failing daylight
then nightfall
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
fiery prelude
to dusk on distant mountains—
pilgrim presses on
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Sonoran Desert—
notorious for its light
rising and falling
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Singing toxic songs,
the lurking desert creatures
welcome one more dusk.

daylight slips away.
