An Hour Before Sunset

An hour before sunset,
there is a moment of pause, of grace,
when a softness comes, smudges the edges
of the harsh and too-bright world.

If you catch a glimpse of it
out the window, drop
your task and run,
and catch it—

Let that golden sunlight soak in
to your soul, that gentle grace and love.
And remember God’s presence
within all.
