Not The Ones



This is the busy time 
before the sun
sets.

Candles lit,
fires stoked,
and doors locked.

The time before 
the sun 
sets 
is always frantic.

Water hauled,
dishes washed,
and floor swept.

The time before 
the sun
sets 
is always full,
almost too
full 
to see the sun 
disappear 
behind the trees...
but it always happens,
and we’re not
ones to notice.
