Tranquility

In the stillness of the mountains
A fading sunset
slips from the horizon

A round moon
nods in passing as it rises
to settle at its post above the peaks

Even the breeze has hushed its sighing
Pine trees share a branch-tip touch
As if to end aloneness for a time

A million stars shine in the heavens
in tribute to the sleeping sun
The struggles for this day are done
