Unremarkable Day

It was an unremarkable day,

with no extraordinary events.

This was not a day for dazzling silver lined clouds

heralding the arrival of angels.

No, this was any old ordinary day.

This was not a day for a brilliant red ending,

flames shooting across the sky.

There was no need for fireworks or celebration.

Pinks and purples and blues

had no place in such a mundane day.

Without flash or fanfare,

the sun simply sank below the horizon,

beautiful in its simplicity,

pale yellow fading to unremarkable gray.
