A tremendous excitement begins as the day ends.
The excitement of two powerful forces attracted to each other.
It is the excitement of the day expressed by painting the sky with vibrant colours making the horizon ember and the seafloor glittering – the breath-taking moment of sunset.
And as the day plunges into the arms of the night as if there is an intense attraction, the day disappears into the darkness of the night.
All throughout the night, there is a time for rest, a time for love, a time for sleep and a time for prayer and finally, a time to say goodbye.
The night will be holding on to the day when it is time to leave.
This is the day’s moment of struggle to get out of the arms of the night. It’s the moment of sunrise.
One ray of light at a time. Until eventually the day can extricate itself from the arms of the night.
