The night had arrived bringing a gradual cooling. Slowly a mist was forming. The world was closing around me. The lights of humanity dimmed, then disappeared. Sounds faded as if being sucked into a void.
Horizontal bands of varying greys had taken over most of the sky. Only a single band of colour remained. It was as if time itself, desired to hang on to what had been.
Vague patches of pure black fought to cover what had been once colourful images. Hiding all traces of humanities intervention. For a few moments I was alone.
Then I lifted my eyes to the heavens. I was transfixed by the simmering world of the stars. Taken for a moment into the cosmos. Carried deep into humanities past. As if seeing briefly what had been. As I wait for my future. That which is yet to come. Breathing deep, I walk slowly home.
