Day fades, shade lengthens
even-tide caesura, bides time
sure succession of slow hours
curve sky, bend colored light
indeterminate wait, bell tolls
Mass begins, life’s anticipation
of renewal with chorus chants
lizards rest in the tops of palms
also trees, as night descends
and alms bless a quiet breeze.
