After the Sunset

Poem by Nivrithi Kuttuva ’21

No comments

As the sun melts into the horizon

Trickling its light through the sky,

We recognize the familiar warmth that 

It has provided us with our whole lives.

The sky’s harmony of hues makes us ponder.

Everything that we have known 

Is going to change someday.

New experiences will materialize

And the fabric of our thoughts will shift.

After the sunset 

We are not guaranteed an answer

As to how our lives will play out.

Nothing is known,

And our futures remain unwritten in the sky.

Until then, we can lie outside 

You and me

And watch as the sun evaporates 

Into the night,

Taking the answers we seek

And the medley of colors 

along with it.
