A moment in Paradise

ParadiseSIMON DAVIDSON

When suns setting rays,
Touched western horizon,
The ev’n skies lit up,
And burned as with flames.

I set my eyes transfixed,
At the evenings fireworks,
At the transient glory,
Oblivious to Covid-19’s rage.

That moment in time was serene.
I was then transported,
To a different universe,
To bask in natures splendor.

As night dark shadows,
Descended warily on earth,
And dusks chilling breeze blew,
I left my sweet spot for home.

The night’s news item,
Gave a bleak view of my world,
Where millions were perishing,
As Covid-19 plague afflicted many.

Those serene moment in nature
Consoled my terrified and weary soul,
With hope burning in my breast.
To face another grim night.

“As setting stars incline my head to sleep,”*
And as I slipped into my cozy bed,
In the moonlit night, I had faith,
That I am in his hands.

* From Virgil’s Aeneid
