The Sunset!

The evening sky seems to shout, "Glory!" 
and I stand transfixed as I gaze in wonder at the beauty I behold. 
So wondrous is the sight before me 
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… they wed.
I stand amazed as the day makes love to the night; 
Slowly they blend together, synchronizing hues
...then quietly they slip away 
to sleep 'neath the starry mantle of heaven.
