At times of darkness
Stand in the light

At times of cruelty
Be kind

At times of hate
Love

At times of judgment
Accept

At times of wrongdoing
Do right

At times of hardship
Help

At times of darkness
Stand in the light
The sun is about gone for the day
It is that time before nightfall and daytime

A slight warm breeze is blowing, teasing the face
The branches of the plants are gently moving

A touch of sun can still be seen in the distant horizon
The city street below is full of life
Restaurants open

People moving about
A drum beat of music can be faintly heard in the background

Voices talking from the restaurant and bar next door
Lights of the city coming on for the night

As the city prepares for nightfall to come one more time
The sun is about gone for the day
It is that time before nightfall and daytime
A slight warm breeze is blowing, teasing the face just a little
Seductive to the touch

The branches of the plants are gently moving to and fro
A touch of sun can still be seen in the distant horizon

The city street below is full of life
Restaurants and cafes are open
People moving about

A drum beat of music can be faintly heard in the background
Voices talking from the restaurant and bar next door

Lights of the city coming on for the night
As the city prepares for nightfall to come
Hot heavy air fills the sky
No breeze to feel
Wind chimes silent in the wind

Windows open searching for something, anything light and breezy
Nighttime starting to come against the  dark sky

Temperatures will start to drop
Doors open hoping to cool the air

Green and gray against the canvas of nature

Things starting to slow down in preparation for the night to come

Hoping to feel the coolness against the skin as the day ends and night comes
Folks drinking coffee in a cafe
Surrounded by red cushions that adorn bright white walls

Music playing with a loud hypnotic beat
News playing in the background on a TV
Red cushions cover the seats as well
Tables set with clear dark red glasses

Professional waiters moving to and fro
People sitting outside under red umbrellas offering welcomed shade

On the start to another hot steamy day
Beautiful purple lilacs outside my bedroom window
Lovely to look at and touch
Releasing their exquisite perfume

Beautiful purple lilacs outside my bedroom window
Giving me a fresh bouquet every day

Beautiful purple lilacs outside my bedroom window
Taking me to a different world

Beautiful purple lilacs outside my bedroom window
White lights glitter against the black grill
The terrace is door open
A view of the plants can be seen
which are highlighted by the lowering sun giving them an impressionistic look

A slight breeze moves through the awning gently moving it back and forth

The light plays against the rose colored buildings giving them a special magical hue
It’s almost surreal

Another day is coming to a close as nighttime encroaches
The change from light to darkness is in a holding pattern like an aircraft waiting to land

The shades of pink change as the sun drops

As the sun continues to drop its
time to relax and slowdown
People are gravitating to cafes for their coffee and chat with friends
Evening is on its’ way
