Saying Goodnight to Birds

I miss rising early
counting steps in the fog
feeling the grass
under my feet
greeting birds
with the sunrise.

Soon enough
but for now
I’m with the setting sun
saying goodnight to birds
greeting bats
at twilight.

Everything looks good they say
against a burning
sunset sky
let’s try it
I’m not sure
I agree.

I wonder which is more forlorn
a tree
headless
or a window
closed
to the sunset sky.

I count my steps
another walk
another sunset
soon enough
a sunrise
another day.
