The final betrayal

The final betrayal

Watched the day descend
           into night
different shades of blue and light
           and lilac
and a soft rosy hue that simmered
           just above the horizon

Saw the tree line
           turn to dark silhouette
heard the birds’ final evensong
           and watched
as pale clouds sped south
           and in my heart
I put her final betrayal
           behind me
