Unique Sunset

The evening’s crepuscular charm

With is whole setting sun

A brilliant pale yellow orb

Slowly lowering itself in the sky

Pouring out brilliant orange hues

Mixed with dark reds and browns

Filling the sky like molten lava

Painting the sky magnificently

Threads of light mingling with wispy clouds

Each layer, overlapping the brightness

Delicate and frail as they linger in the sky

Sitting patiently, waiting for the moment

For that one photo, that changes my world

Crisp air floats downwards, like a deflated balloon

The sky is captured, that moment in time

There will never be an identical sunset

Twilight has arrived

a love poem on an inanimate object


Your brightness catches the light
Its shows the your flaws
Your warmth to the touch yet hard
I see the depth in your yellowness
You change colour when I look at you
You hang around my neck
I place my hand on you.
I feel your warmth, your love
I remember the past, see the present
Look to the future
