IBMC #4: Hunt a Haiku Challenge

The task is to take this quote and make meaning out of the following haiku:

the sun will set slow
people go home for shelter
sun will rise again

The day was over, and the sun was gaining an orange hue on the western sky. The day had brought the waters into the homes of hundreds, and, fortunately for the inhabitants, it was taking them back with it. The homes themselves were in horrible states, but what could they do? With the sun slowly receding over the horizon, reflecting itself in the waters it had brought, the day was done. What little was left of what they called home would have to do as shelter for the night. And after the night, a new day will come, and a new day was always better than desperation.
