Afterglow/Sky-watch Friday



Streaks of purple and orange above the fading light of a fiery summer sunset in Cebu.



Enlightenment
by Samuel Menashe

He walked in awe
In awe of light
At nightfall, not at dawn
Whatever he saw
Receding from sight
In the sky's afterglow
Was what he wanted
To see, to know...


Twilight
by Samuel Menashe

Looking across 
The water we are
Startled by a star---
It is not dark yet
The sun has not set

Looking across
The water we are
Alone as that star
That startled us,
And as far
