Sunsets — especially those on the desert — can be spectacular. Eyes glued to the west. Camera shutter clicking. Breath-stopping wonder.

Indeed it was. A sky full of fluffy clouds soon became a boiling cauldron.
Wind-whipped, I stood on the gravel road breathing in the coming storm.

Then darkness enveloped me.
Walk out on the fringe of nightfall
Where light and shadow meet
And muffled sounds drift on the cooling air.
Much is possible
When we step between worlds.
