Nightfall and passerby

Another day has went

the sky painted across in streams of colors

like a canvas

darkness quickly settles in

blanketing the Earth

yet still people are out and about

walking, running, biking, driving

moving in multiple ways

all to get somewhere

all to get to someone

maybe to a family member who smiles so big when greeting

maybe to a significant other whose presence brings warmth

maybe to a pet whose companionship offers comfort

maybe to no one but empty walls and the sound of their own thoughts

yet- to somewhere or someone

people never stop to notice those passing by

or notice the way the Earth continues on its rotation no matter how much chaos is unfolding

maybe if people stopped focusing on the objective

they’d enjoy the painted sky more, the blanketed sky and the people who are so often overlooked
