In a sunset


In a sunset

Colors too vibrant for nature

Colors only possible in nature

Radiant sunlight slanted

Clouds catching sideways shafts

Brilliant port red, ember orange, incandescent yellow

All colors churned with fire.

Turn around and see

Indigo, cobweb blue, periwinkle, dusty rose

Cool colors fading fast, even they had heat.

The light moves to new horizons

And we are left walking away from the departing evening

Facing the arrival of winter’s night

Heralded by a solitary bird

And our footsteps in gravel.
