    I've never seen a sunset
    But I've seen the twilight of day and night
    I've seen the earth shut it's eyes from evening sight
    and then open them back for morning bright
    I've never seen a Sunset
    Suns never set
    as to being set in one place
    Suns are set
    Upon galactic rotations
    Spiritual in and exhalations
    that move heavenly bodies to and fro.
    In intrinsic patterns
    numbers to high for the mind to count to within one lifetime.
    Consider if the suns were set
    in one place to never move about universal space
    planet rotations would not be
    because movement is cosmic
    the face of the sky changes
    because the universe moves too.
    Movement is cosmic like time, math, and music
    I've never seen a sunset
    But I've seen the twilight of day and night
    I've seen the earth shut it's eyes from evening sight
    and then open them back for morning bright
    But I've never seen the sunset
    But I have seen the sun move
    and have been moved by it.

    Nahshon...this is so...so profound. I grasped this poem as though it was a story to be savored by my soul for higher consciousness sake. Thank you for sharing it with me.
