A Blue Sunset Sits on an Orange Horizon

by Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore

They trail their hands in the water
Their feet hit the cold hard ground
Their faces light up dark corners
Their eyes are wet with light
They move with a deep resilience
They fall into shadows and out again
People who meet them are amazed
They do nothing to attract attention
Their mode is invisibility
I’ve seen one or two of them close up
As in all of us most of them is hidden
As in all of us they dwell in sweetness
When a light in the dark is ignited
A spinning takes place like earth’s orbit
