deep evening blue

summer skies
deep evening blue
creates a backdrop like no other
soft yet stark
enveloping in its distant arc

i gaze out at the night
still but noisy
the city is alive
in midsummer glory

times seems to pass all too quickly
but this moment is perfect
and the space of it fills me

shadows cast
like memories of what's behind us
look ahead
life is now

these curving tree branches
that growling motor
the flutter of insects
and fireworks crackling

this is the moment
deep evening blue
