The evening sky seems to shout,
and I stand transfixed as I
gaze in wonder at the beauty I behold.
So wondrous is the sight before
that I dread even a blink to
obscure a moment's view.
As the splendor of the sunset
bursts forth into flaming shades of orange, pink, and purple...intermingling…
I stand amazed as the day makes
love to the night;
Slowly they blend together,
...then quietly they slip away
to sleep 'neath the starry mantle
