sundown

The sun and the sky part
in the most beautiful farewell I've ever seen:
bleeding together,
 even as they pull apart-
rays of light stretching like fingers
extended in a lover's caress.
Her light
gently strokes his face
streaming across is like tears
neither willing to let the other go
until she sinks
below the horizon
and all he has left of her
is her image
imprinted
behind his eyelids.
